Aerosmith tour in air after Tyler’s fall
U.S. super-band Aerosmith canceled its Friday performance in Winnipeg, Canada, to allow front man Steven Tyler to recover from injuries he sustained in a fall.
Tyler suffered a broken shoulder and bumps to his head and neck when he fell off the stage during a performance Wednesday at the Stugis, S.D., motorcycle rally. He was airlifted to an area hospital after the incident.
In a post to the social networking Web site Twitter, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry's wife said Tyler was in his home town of Boston Friday, MTV.com reported.
He hit his head and back. No concussion, stitches in head and back near shoulder. Broken shoulder. Yes he is very sore. We were all worried, Billy Perry tweeted.
A statement issued by the band's publicist said the remainder of the tour was in doubt, MTV.com said.
Aerosmith will not perform their Friday, Aug. 7 show at the Canad Inns Stadium in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, based on injuries lead singer Steven Tyler sustained when he fell from the stage at Wednesday's show at Buffalo Chip Campgrounds in Sturgis, S.D., the statement said.
Additional details will be issued when they are available.
