“Be there or beware as we bring all the toys out of the attic,” vocalist Steven Tyler posted referring to the band’s classic 1975 album. Aerosmith shared on social media, "It's not goodbye it's PEACE OUT! Get ready and walk this way, you're going to get the best show of our lives." But just a few days into the tour singer Steven Tyler suffered vocal cord damage during the September 9 performance at UBS Arena in Elmont, NY, and has been ordered not to sing for at least 30 days.
Aerosmith - the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers 40-concert farewell North America tour had been scheduled from September 2023 through January 2024. The Black Crowes are the opening act for all performances.
“(We’re) kind of anxious to get back on the road,“ guitarist Joe Perry said, with the announcement of the tour. Drummer Joey Kramer was absent due to health concerns. John Douglas will sit in for Kramer.
"While Joey Kramer remains a beloved founding member of Aerosmith," the band stated, "he has regrettably made the decision to sit out the currently scheduled touring dates to focus his full attention on his family and health. Joey's unmistakable and legendary presence behind the drum kit will be sorely missed."
Regarding the 30 day postponement, the Band now issued the following post on social media: "I'm heartbroken to say I have received strict doctor's orders not to sing for the next thirty days," Steven said in a statement. "I sustained vocal cord damage during Saturday's show that led to subsequent bleeding. We'll need to postpone a few dates so that we can come back and give you the performance you deserve."
Shows in Chicago, Detroit, Washington, Toronto, Raleigh and Cleveland have been affected by Tyler's vocal distress.

Fleetwood Mac's CHRISTINE McVIE - cause of death disclosed

A new report has been released citing the singer, keyboardist's death certificate. Fleetwood Mac vocalist Christine McVie died from an ischemic stroke, and had malignant cancer. The Mayo Clinic defines an ischemic stroke as one that “occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted or reduced, preventing brain tissue from getting oxygen and nutrients. Brain cells begin to die in minutes."
What's more McVie was diagnosed with “metastatic malignancy of unknown primary origin,” where cancer cells were detected in her body, though it was unable to be determined from where they had originated," according to the National Cancer Institute. This cancer was listed as a secondary cause of death, and not the primary.
This new information about McVie's cause of death has been disclosed three months after she passed away at age 79, on November 30 2022, and was revealed by a death certificate obtained by "The Blast".
The singer’s longtime manager Martin Wyatt was named executor of her estate, which was reported as in excess of $50 million. McVie’s beneficiaries include her brother, and his children, and charitable causes the vocalist supported during her life.
McVie's family originally stated in a post that Christine died at the hospital “following a short illness,” while surrounded by her family. “We would like everyone to keep Christine in their hearts and remember the life of an incredible human being, and revered musician who was loved universally,” the family added.
Fleetwood Mac also expressed their sorrow and grief in a social media statement. “There are no words to describe our sadness at the passing of Christine McVie. She was truly one-of-a-kind, special and talented beyond measure. She was the best musician anyone could have in their band and the best friend anyone could have in their life.”
The famed rock band added, “We were so lucky to have a life with her. Individually and together, we cherished Christine deeply and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. She will be so very missed.”
Christine McVie left the band in 1998, and wrote many of the most recognizable hits, including “Don’t Stop,” “Everywhere,” “Songbird” and “The Chain.”
Fleetwood Mac was Stevie Nicks vocalist, songwriter, Mick Fleetwood drums, Lindsey Buckingham guitar, Christine's former husband John Graham Mcvie bass guitar, Christine McVie vocalist, songwriter, keyboards.
Christine was married to McVie from 1968 to 1976. The "Songbird" later married (1986-2003) Eddy Quintela Portuguese songwriter, and keyboardist.

KISS confirm "Shout It Out Loud," Biopic will be about the early years in NYC. Release set through Netflix for 2024
In a March interview, KISS manager Doc McGhee revealed Netflix will release "Shout It Out Loud" the band's Biopic in 2024. The film will center on the band’s early years, the first four formative years in New York City.
“I think it’s a very interesting look at the formation of KISS, the mindset of how that came about, the social pressure that everybody was in in the ’60s and ’70s that brought something like KISS to the forefront, that it could actually happen. So it’s a very interesting, and I think it’s a well-written movie,” McGhee said

Paul Stanley KISS frontman revealed in an interview last summer,“I will tell you this: for casting to be accurate in terms of age, we are looking at actors in their early 20s. Honestly, I don’t know a whole lot of actors in their early 20s. ...
You’re talking about another generation of actors. And I’m the first to say I’m not up on a lot of them. But as the casting process goes on, I’ll certainly be there and watching. It’ll be interesting to see how someone else — be it the casting people or the director — how they view who I am and who they see doing that. I think I’ll learn a lot about their perception of me by who they cast.”
KISS in April begin the final leg of shows in South America.
The band has added four new dates to The End of The Road Tour to kick off October, which will include performances in Detroit MI, Nashville TN, St. Louis MO., and Fort Worth TX.
