'We will continue our 2022 dates starting in September, and we'll let you know any further updates as soon as we can. 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.

'Thank you for your understanding and for your support for Steven during this time. If you purchased your tickets via Ticketmaster, you will be refunded and will receive an email shortly with details, otherwise please contact your point of purchase for information on refunds.'

The Boston group - featuring Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, Joey Kramer, and Brad Whitford - is hoping Steven will recover before their next scheduled concert on September 4 at Maine Savings Amphitheater in Bangor. 

Tyler (born Tallarico) was last publicly seen on April 3 attending a Grammy Awards viewing party in Hollywood benefitting his foundation Janie's Fund with his girlfriend since 2012, Aimee Ann Preston.

At 34, the Manhattan-born musician's former personal assistant is 40 years younger than him.

Steven previously completed rehab stints in 1984, 1986, 1988, and 2010 - the latter of which was for 'pain management and an addiction to prescription painkillers resulting from 10 years of performance injuries.'

At the time, Tyler's physician, Dr. Brian McKeon, told People that the orthopedic injuries to his knees and feet left him with 'severe chronic pain.'

Tyler told Haute Living in 2019: 'I have had many times in my life where I just couldn't handle, whether it was a marriage or my addiction had reared its ugly head, and the rest of the guys in the band are not unlike that. But we have all seen each other through it, and we are here today. My whole life is dreams coming true. I am so beyond grateful for it all'
