Aerosmith frontman's surgery to be televised

Steven Tyler will appear on US television this weekend

Aerosmith frontman's surgery to be televised
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is set to appear on NBC's 'Today Show' tomorrow (October 19) and National Geographic Channel’s 'Incredible Human Machine' on Sunday (October 21), where they will chronicle the cutting edge laser surgery he underwent to repair his vocal chords.

Footage of the legendary rocker's surgery will be shown, as well as a backstage test that evaluated the stress that singing put on his vocal chords.

During a sold-out show at the Tweeter Center in Aerosmith's hometown of Boston, Tyler was fitted with a vest to monitor his vital readings, including heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen levels, lung capacity and body temperature to show the impact a performance had on his body.

The National Geographic programme will show this test as well as high-definition photos of Tyler's larynx during the operation, and before-and-after photos illustrating how his vocal chords were repaired.
