Brad Whitford Confirms Aerosmith Won’t Tour Anymore After Shows !

Bad news for Aerosmith fans: The band will no longer tour after their farewell shows.

In a new interview with Premier Guitar, Brad Whitford confirmed that their farewell shows would indeed be their last. When asked if the tour was being built as their last tour and if it is really a goodbye to the stage, the rocker said that it depended on the rest of the members’ health:

“Yeah, it will be. I’m not sure, hopefully we make it through this. there’s going to be 40 shows and I don’t see us doing much more after that. I think it just I think it depends on everybody’s health and how everybody’s feeling.”

Steven Tyler hurt his vocal cords during a concert in September and said he couldn’t sing for the next 30 days. Aerosmith then announced they had to delay their farewell tour until ‘sometime in 2024’ because Tyler’s injury was worse than they thought.

A few months later, the band revealed they would keep going with their ‘Peace Out’ tour this year, even after postponing several concerts due to Tyler’s vocal cord injury. They shared new concert dates and rescheduled shows stretching into 2025.

One highlight of the tour will be a ‘special hometown show’ on New Year’s Eve at Boston’s TD Garden. The band was supposed to welcome in 2024 at the Garden before Tyler’s injury.

Aerosmith’s announcement didn’t give any updates on Tyler’s health. The singer had previously talked about damaging his vocal cords during a performance last September that caused bleeding. The doctor told him not to sing for 30 days.

They had to cancel a few shows and later postponed their farewell tour to 2024 because Tyler’s injury was worse than they initially thought, including a fractured larynx.

Tyler said on social media in late November that his throat was getting better. He also said something similar earlier this year while hosting a Grammys viewing party in February, and told the guests according to People:

“My throat’s been better, but it’s getting there.”
