Another injury puts Aerosmith back in the headlines, along with fictional band Dethklok, in the daily tour recap for August 6, as compiled by TicketNews.
Aerosmith‘s current North American tour has hit another injury related roadblock, just shortly after recovering from a recent bout of cancellations. The rock group may be forced to postpone or cancel more shows after an August 5 performance that culminated in frontman Steven Tyler falling from the stage and being hospitalized with head, neck and shoulder injuries.
Fictional death metal band Dethklok, from the Adult Swim cartoon “Metalocalypse,” will be touring in the flesh this fall as part of a co-headline bill with Mastodon. Comedian and actor Steve Martin also has new tour plans of his own as he plans to showcase his latest album of bluegrass music on U.S. stages this fall. In a similar role reversal, county singer Lorrie Morgan is crossing over from music into acting with her new role in the 2010 Broadway musical “Pure Country.”
