Whenever Steven Tyler falls down, chances are Aerosmith is going to get some time off.
The latest tumble by the 63-year-old rock and roll icon and "American Idol" judge took place on Tuesday in Paraguay, when Tyler reportedly slipped and fell in his hotel bathroom, ending him to a local emergency room. According to a Reuters report, Tyler spent four hours at La Costa medical center in Paraguay's capital and received emergency dental work and stitches to repair cuts to his face and the loss of two teeth.
The incident forced Aerosmith to cancel Tuesday night's show in Asuncion, Paraguay, which was part of their current Latin American tour. The outing kicked off on Saturday in Lima, Peru, and is slated to hit La Plata, Argentina, on Friday and swing through Brazil, Panama, Columbia, Ecuador and Mexico before heading to Japan in late November.
"Mr. Tyler had a small accident that prevents him from staging the concert tonight," said Marcelo Antunez, a spokesperson for the show's promoter. "He is fine, he's in his hotel but he's not able to do the concert."
The concert has been rescheduled for Wednesday (October 26) night. Another spokesperson for the promoter, Nicolas Garzia, tweeted that Tyler had been dehydrated and was suffering gastrointestinal problems before the tumble.
The last time Tyler fell was in August 2009, when he slipped off a stage in South Dakota and was airlifted to a hospital, which forced the postponement of the group's North American tour. The inter-group tension that followed almost resulted in the Rock Hall of Famers breaking up as the band briefly weighed searching for a new singer.
