Steven Tyler is out of rehab – and looking forward to returning to the stage with his band Aerosmith.
Steven Tyler (74) was released from rehab. A spokesman for Tyler’s band Aerosmith confirmed this to People magazine. “He is doing very well and looks forward to getting back on stage,” the statement said. The US site “TMZ” had previously reported the singer’s return from the addiction clinic.
In May, Aerosmith announced that their singer had voluntarily entered rehab. He wanted to “focus on his health and recovery” there. After more than ten years of sobriety, he suffered a relapse due to a foot operation and the associated pain treatment.
Engagement in Las Vegas is scheduled to start in September
Aerosmith were scheduled to play a series of shows in Las Vegas in June and July of this year. The rock band had to cancel the engagement because of their singer’s drug problems. According to “People”, the concerts are to be rescheduled from September.
After Steven Tyler first went into drug rehabilitation in 1988, he stayed clean until 2009. After that first relapse, Tyler stayed off drugs until this year.
