Steven Tyler: "I Certainly Did Not Have a Heart Attack or a Seizure"

by VVN Music

Steven Tyler is ready to set the record straight about why he cancelled part of Aerosmith's South American tour and flew home for medical treatment.

The band were in the middle of the South American leg of their Aero-Vederci Baby Tour when Tyler suffered "an unexpected medical condition". A statement from the band said that the singer was "seeking immediate care and has been advised by his doctors that he cannot travel or perform at this time."

Speculation started almost immediately, at first focusing on a heart attack and, later, on a possible seizure after the band's Monday (September 25) night show in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Tyler insists it was neither in a statement on the band's website:

"IT BREAKS MY HEART TO HAVE LEFT THIS TOUR EARLY...THE BAND HAS NEVER PLAYED BETTER...JUST WATCH THE 100,000 PEOPLE AT ROCK IN RIO...I GIVE YOU ALL AN A+ FOR CREATIVE SPECULATIONS BUT I CERTAINLY DID NOT HAVE A HEART ATTACK OR A SEIZURE ((UNLESS JOE PERRY IS TAKIN’ A RIPPIN’ LEAD))...SORRY TO HAVE CUT THE TOUR SHORT BUT I HAD TO HAVE A PROCEDURE THAT ONLY MY DOC IN THE STATES COULD PERFORM...WE’VE BEEN TO TEL AVIV… TO RUSSIA… TO RIO… AND ALL THE IN BETWEEN…I GUESS IT’S TRUE WHAT THEY SAY ...”THAT LIFE’S A PISSER WHEN EU’RE A PEEIN’....” -Steven Tyler


The South American dates were the last of the current leg of the tour with no further shows on the schedule.
