Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler was doing 'the Tyler shuffle' when he slipped off the edge of the stage

Aerosmith will not resume their tour following frontman Steven Tyler's stage tumble last week.

The rocker, 61, is nursing a broken shoulder and has stitches in his head after falling during a concert in South Dakota on 5 August.  

Steven has been ordered to take time out to recover after consulting his doctors in Boston.

‘I'm plain grateful that I didn't break my neck,’ he says in a statement.

Fans will be entitled to refunds for the gigs scheduled in Canada and the US until 16 September.

‘We never anticipated this tour coming to such a swift and unfortunate ending,’ adds guitarist Brad Whitford.

‘Our thoughts and prayers go out to Steven for a speedy recovery and return to good health.’
