Steven Tyler Suffers Broken Shoulder, This Aerosmith Tour is Cursed

Earlier this week, Aerosmith performed at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota. During that show, lead singer Steven Tyler fell off the catwalk. The story went that Steven fell into the crowd and security rushed to his side, but he got up on his own and was joking with doctors. Later, he was airlifted to a nearby hospital and the remainder of the show was canceled.

Now, there's word Steven's injuries are a little more serious than once thought: he has a broken shoulder and received stitches in his head and back. To me, this means the tour is just about done. How can it possibly go on? At this rate, everyone in the band - save drummer Joey Kramer and guitarist Joe Perry - has been on the disabled list for some sort of ailment, injury or freak accident. Please remember guitarist Brad Whitford had surgery after hitting his head while getting out of his Ferrari. Bass player Tom Hamilton recently required surgery and still isn't back on the road with the band. Let's not forget Steven's earlier injury to his foot which caused several show cancellations - including mine. Those shows have not been rescheduled.

At this point, I'm looking for a refund on those tickets. I just don't see how the band can stay on the road - and that's ok. I'd rather have a happy and healthy Aerosmith than a band that's battered, bruised and bitchy. No, I don't think the band should retire...but maybe a nice vacation is in order. Thoughts?

A "Permanent Vacation" for the overrated ones.

Weird how a band so blessed could have this happen out of the blue. Really odd tour... really odd.

I was just thinking the same thing when I read Steven tyler fell of the stage in much bad luck can this tour take? Usually, they are solid live and the tours are usually long and they hit the New England area 3 or 4 times. Maybe age is a factor? Maybe all the hard living is catching up? Who knows...

I saw every Aerosmith tour since the Done With Mirrors tour in 1986 thru the tour with KISS in 2003 and they were solid each time despite some of the material. I caught the tour for Honkin' On Bobo and I vowed it would be my last because they just weren't up to snuff. Too bad.....I have a lot of great memories of Aerosmith concerts and I've seen them play all the big hits and some real deep album tracks. I always thought they were at their best when the didn't care about the hits.
