However, once again Tyler’s health forced the band off the road. Halfway through Aerosmith’s farewell tour in September 2017, the star experienced “unexpected medical issues,” resulting in the pulling of four South American shows. People also began to speculate darkly about the exact nature of these unforeseen problems.
Tyler, though, issued a statement which claimed that his condition was not life-threatening. But he did acknowledge that he had “to deal with this right away and get some rest and medical care immediately in order to sustain and maintain [his] future performances.” Reports surfaced that the singer had endured either a heart attack or a seizure following Aerosmith’s September 27 gig in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
