Steven Tyler Cancels Drug Addiction Benefit Appearance
Ironically the event was put together to "raised money to fight substance abuse among young people" and Tyler was forced to cancel because he is currently in rehab for pain management and addiction to prescription drugs.
But there is a chance that the show will be rescheduled once Tyler is back on the road to recovery. Kat Strange, communications director for Child and Family Services, a key sponsor of the show told the Concord Monitor, "Our agency and the people working with the artist's management all agree that we want to reschedule this date," Strange said yesterday. "Given the serious health concerns Mr. Tyler is facing, you just can't pick a day, but that's Plan A." - Read the Monitor report here for more details
