Aerosmith’s Joe Perry Scraps Remaining Solo Dates For The Year

Music News

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has cancelled his remaining tour dates for 2018 with fans receiving full ticket refunds. Perry was rushed to the hospital back on November 10th following a guest stint with Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden. The next day, Perry’s reps said in a statement, “Following a guest performance during Billy Joel’s show last night at Madison Square Garden, Joe Perry experienced shortness of breath and was treated backstage by paramedics who gave the guitarist oxygen and used a tracheal tube to clear his airway before taking him to a hospital. This morning Perry remains in the hospital where he is alert and responsive.”

Perry was set to undertake a 10-city solo tour later this month with his backing band featuring fellow Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford and Extreme frontman Gary Cherone.

Last night (November 20th), Perry posted a message to his fans on Facebook, announcing that he was scrapping the remainder of his upcoming dates:

“Just wanted to thank everyone for all of the kind messages I’ve received this week. I’m home and doing well, but the doctor recommends a bit more downtime before getting out to rock again, so regrettably I had to cancel my upcoming tour dates. Was really looking forward to playing these shows with Brad and Gary and seeing all of you who were planning to come out and support us. We will be back out as soon as possible. Wishing you all happy holidays and looking forward to seeing you in 2019.”
