WASHINGTON - Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has said that he is heartbroken at the idea of not completing their current tour.
The gig ended after the lead vocalist Steven Tyler got injured, when he fell from the stage during a show in South Dakota.
“We still don’t know if we’re going to keep the tour up or what. It’s breaking my heart,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
Tyler broke his shoulder and suffered minor head and neck injuries after he toppled mistiming a dance step.
He is presently being treated at the local Rapid City Regional Hospital.
The band has already postponed the scheduled concert in Winnipeg, Canada to allow him to heal.
However, they have 18 dates scheduled on their summer tour, with their final performance due to take place in Detroit, Michigan on 16 September.
The group has been drawn back due to similar problems earlier as well.
Tyler opted to cancel many shows after he suffered a leg injury, while bandmate Brad Whitford had to skip touring duties after undergoing surgery for a burst blood vessel.
Also, their planned tour in 2008 and dates earlier this year were postponed to allow Perry to recover from a knee surgery. (ANI)
