AeroForce 1 Experiences Turbulance, But Tour Expected To Continue

A small stint of bad luck seems to have struck the band Aerosmith during their show on August 5th in the famous Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in SD. Never one to let a technical glitch keep them from putting on a stellar performance, when infamous Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler noticed the sound system had failed in the middle of their song “Love in an Elevator,” he began to dance around on the catwalk in order to keep the crowd entertained. Unfortunately, Tyler’s entertaining antics came to an end when he fell backwards off of the catwalk and into the crowd. He was immediately taken to the hospital, where he continued to remain in good spirits.

When asked about Tyler’s accident and current condition, Mike Sanborn of the Buffalo Chip Campground said that “He was good natured about it. He was talking and joking with the physician.” Guitarist Joe Perry later tweeted about the incident, stating that though there was no concussion Steven did break his shoulder and required stitches in his head and back. While there’s no word yet on when the band will be able to resume the Canadian string of their tour, there are no plans of canceling either. As of the last update, the shows in Winnipeg, Regina, Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver were simply postponed. The rescheduled dates for that leg of the tour will be announced as soon as possible.

It’s been two years since Aerosmith last toured, and 8 years since they last released an all-original studio album, so fans of the band have been scrambling to snatch up tickets. The tour, which was originally set to conclude on September 16th in Detroit, MI’s Palace of Auburn Hills, still has a very limited supply of Aerosmith tickets left for both Canadian and American concerts that are to take place in September.
