Steven Tyler Releases Statement After Checking Into Drug Rehab Following A Relapse

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has released a statement confirming he is checking himself into rehab following his relapse.

They wrote: ​​"As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven has worked on his sobriety for many years.

 "After foot surgery to prepare for the stage and the necessity of pain management during the process, he has recently relapsed and voluntarily entered a treatment program to concentrate on his health and recovery."


Aerosmith shared that while the singer ‘focuses on his well-being’, they will be cancelling their Las Vegas Residency dates in June and July, but their September shows are still scheduled.

Aerosmith’s next residency show in Las Vegas is set for September 14, and the band is still scheduled to perform in Maine and Massachusetts that month.

They also revealed that fans who have purchased tickets for cancelled shows would receive a refund immediately.

Tyler, who has a history of drug and alcohol abuse, has been transparent about his addiction and journey to sobriety.


In 2019, he told Haute Living that his band members staged an intervention in the late '80s to help the singer get back on track.

He said: "They thought, 'Get the lead singer sober and all our problems will be over'. So I got sober, and you know it took me many years to get over the anger of them sending me to rehab.

"But today, because of that moment ... I am grateful and owe a thanks to them for my sobriety. My sobriety cost me less than everything." 

In 2018, Tyler appeared on the Fox News show OBJECTified, where he also opened up about how his crippling addiction began affecting his everyday life.


“I have an addictive personality so I found certain drugs I loved and didn’t stop to the point of hurting my children, hurting my life, hurting my family, hurting my band,” he said.  

“There was a point where I didn’t have a band and I didn’t care.”

He also likened the experience of getting high to Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. 

“I went down the worst path. I went down the rabbit hole,” he said. “I went chasing Alice.”
