Tyler Broke Shoulder In Stage Fall

STEVEN TYLER is nursing a broken shoulder following his fall from the stage during an AEROSMITH show in South Dakota on Wednesday night (05Aug09).
Tyler took a tumble after mistiming a dance step while performing at the sell-out show at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
He was airlifted to the Rapid City Regional Hospital in the early hours of Thursday (06Aug09), suffering from head, neck and shoulder injuries.
The wife of guitarist Joe Perry told fans on her Twitter.com page on Thursday that Tyler received stitches in his head and back - and had also broken his shoulder in the accident.
Billie Perry writes, "He hit his head and back. No concussion, stitches in head and back near shoulder. Broken shoulder. Yes he is very sore. We were all worried."
A spokesperson for the band announced that Aerosmith's planned show in Winnipeg, Canada on Friday (07Aug09) has been pushed back to allow Tyler time to recover.
And Perry has hinted that more shows could be affected.
She adds, "Steven will see his own doctor tonight or tomorrow. No word on the tour when it will resume should know more very soon regarding this."
