I flew back to the US on doctor’s orders last night after the show in São Paulo. Please not to worry… I am not in a life threatening condition, but I need to deal with this right away, and get some rest and medical care immediately in order to sustain and maintain my future performances… I promise I’ll be back…unfortunately, health does not wait and it’s something even I can’t schedule around our shows… As they say, “We humans make plans, and God laughs…” I love you all and will be back with you soon… – Steven Tyler
