“Thank you for your understanding and support of Steven during this time.”
Tyler opened in 2019 around the time his band had to send him to rehab to kick a habit in 1988.
“There was a time in ’88 when management and the band did an intervention on me,” Tyler told Haute Living at the time. “They thought, ‘Get the singer sober, and all our problems would be solved. So I got sober and, you know, it took me many years to get over the anger that they sent me to rehab while they were going on vacation.”
Tyler said the experience helped him stay sober all these years.
“But today, because of this moment…I am grateful and owe them a thank you for my sobriety,” he added.
