MIAMI – Steven Tyler recently voluntarily checked himself into rehab.

Tyler, 74, relapsed after he had foot surgery and needed pain management, Aerosmith announced on Tuesday afternoon.

This prompted the cancelation of the rock band’s upcoming concerts in June and July in Las Vegas.

“We are devastated that we have inconvenienced so many of you, especially our most loyal fans who often travel great distances to experience our shows.”

The band didn’t cancel the concerts in September.

“Thank you for your understanding and for your support for Steven during this time.”
