Aerosmith cancelled a show in Concord, California last night (August 13) due to "illness".

TMZ reports that Joey Kramer (pictured centre, above) had heart complications on Tuesday, claiming that a source close to the band told them Kramer has had heart issues in the past and that a member of crew said the 64-year-old will now undergo heart surgery.

The venue, Concord Pavilion, said only that the cancellation was due to illness. A statement posted to their Facebook page reads: "Due to illness, Aerosmith has been forced to cancel tonight's performance at the Concord Pavilion in Concord, CA. The band regrets not being able to perform for their fans. Refunds will be available at point of purchase."

The band's next scheduled show is on Saturday in Quincy, Washington. Actor Johnny Depp made a surprise appearance on stage with Aerosmith last month (July 16), joining the band in a performance of blues song 'Train Kept A-Rollin''.

Performing at Download earlier this summer, Aerosmith covered The Beatles' 'Come Together' as they brought the festival to a close with a hit-packed set.

The stadium rockers, who had previously headlined the event in 2010, performed for 95-minute set and led the crowd in a chant of "Fuck the curfew" at the end.
