for the rest of the night.!

for release on February 24 (next Tuesday). It's a Sony release (Guess that

Steven Tyler's illness forces the band to cancel Wednesday's concert at the
By Carol Simmons
You don't feel well, you call in sick.
No big deal.
Well, not if you're rock star Steven Tyler, lead singer of the veteran
band, Aerosmith, which was scheduled to perform a near sell-out show Wednesday
the Ervin J. Nutter Center at Wright State University.
Tyler, reportedly diagnosed with viral laryngitis, called in sick
Wednesday, and it was a very big deal for the concert's more than 9,500
ticket-holders. Some didn't know the performance had been called off until
they arrived at the arena for the 8 p.m.
The Nutter Center posted plastic signs along roads leading to the Center
and lit up
the venue's large marquee to notify people that the concert had been
"postponed". But some still ventured up to the box office to confirm.
Three 19-year old friends - Heidi Joseph, Carrie Lieb, and Laura Smith -
had left work early to drive down from Lima. "We saw the sign and said "NO!"
Other friends were also planning to make the trip, she said.
Nutter Center management, which notified television and radio stations
cancellation after they learned of Tyler's illness Wednesday afternoon, hopes
to reschedule the concert in April, according to arena spokeswoman Laura
Tickets for Wednesday night's show which cost $36.50, will be honored at the
rescheduled date, she said. Refunds were not available Wednesday evening.

Aerosmith U.S. Tour Ends On Off Note
Aerosmith has ended their current North American tour with a fizzle instead of a bang.
Ticketmaster reports that the band's last show on this leg of the tour, scheduled for Dayton, Ohio, Wednesday night was cancelled at the last minute due to an unspecified ailment affecting singer Steven Tyler.
The band will now be starting their break a day earlier than planned. They head to Japan for a two week tour starting March 1. According to Ticketmaster, the group will try and make up the missed date when they return from overseas.
Meanwhile, the band's show in Grand Rapids, Michigan, February 5, saw rocker Ted Nugent sit in for a rendition of "Walk The Dog." According to the Aerosmith website, Tyler and Joe Perry were planning on spending time at Nugent's Michigan home studio jamming and possibly doing a little hunting in his private game reserve.

and heīs got all their albums. Which is pretty strange, considering that
