The outlet added the singer sustained the injury early on in Saturday night's show, but decided to continue with the gig and he's determined to get back to performing as soon as he's done with 30 days of doctor-ordered vocal rest.

Aerosmith have been forced to reschedule all their remaining dates for September to allow the singer time to recover.

Steven broke the news in a statement posted on Instagram, which said: "I'm heartbroken to say I have received strict doctor's orders not to sing for the next 30 days. I sustained vocal cord damage during Saturday's show that led to subsequent bleeding.

The affected shows include stops in Detroit, Michigan, Chicago, Illinois, Washington, D.C., Toronto, Canada, Raleigh, North Carolina and Cleveland, Ohio. They have all been pushed back to January and February 2024.
