Aerosmith cancel South American gig after Steven Tyler suffers ‘nasty’ fall in the shower

Frontman loses two teeth and suffers cuts to the face following accident

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler was forced to cancel a gig in South America last night (October 25) after he suffered a serious fall in a hotel shower.

The singer was taken to hospital with cuts on his face and he lost two of his teeth following the accident at the Bourbon Hotel in Asuncion, in Paraguay. The band were due to a play a concert in the area but it was postponed until tonight (October 26).

Marcelo Antunez, a spokesman for the concert organisers, said:

Mr Tyler had a small accident that prevents him from staging the concert tonight. He is fine, he’s in his hotel but he’s not able to do the concert.


Tyler spent nearly four hours at the La Costa medical centre in Paraguay’s capital, reports Reuters.

Nicolas Garzia, whose firm organised the Paraguay gig, said that the singer’s accident was caused by dehydration and gastrointestinal problems.

A bellboy at the Bourbon Hotel also told local radio that Tyler slipped when he was taking a shower and “had a nasty fall”.

Two years ago Aerosmith had to cancel a series of remaining dates on their North Amercian tour when Tyler broke his shoulder after falling off the stage.
