Aerosmith Cancel Concerts
The band was scheduled to perform at festivals in China this week as part of their Global Warming Tour but have pulled out the shows in Shanghai on August 21st and Taipei on August 24th.
The group's representative sent over these comments from the band: "We are extremely upset to have disappointed our dedicated fans," says Steven Tyler. "They have welcomed us into their country and due to uncontrollable circumstances we will not be able to perform. We were so excited to share our music with them and look forward to one day returning and giving them the show they deserve."
"It's always been a dream of ours to play in Shanghai and Taipei, and meet our fans there," Tom Hamilton says. "We were really looking forward to visiting Shanghai and Taipei and playing for our fans there and are very disappointed that these two shows have been cancelled."
"We're disappointed as we wanted to play for our fans," said Joe Perry. "We've looked forward to this for a lifetime."
"I'm disappointed we weren't able to play for our fans in China; however, the circumstances were beyond our control," says Joey Kramer. "I sincerely hope Aerosmith will get another opportunity to come back to Shanghai and Taiwan to play for our many fans there."
