Steven Tyler suffers fall in hotel bathroom, breaks teeth
Steven Tyler was recently hospitalized after suffering a fall in a bathroom in a hotel in Paraguay, which prompted the rocker and "American Idol" judge to undergo emergency dental work and for his band Aerosmith to postpone a planned concert.
The 63-year-old singer received stitches at a hospital and was in discharged in good condition after four hours. The Associated Press quoted a dentist who treated Tyler as saying the rocker was "friendly and humble" as he received two dental implants.
"Steven Tyler suffered minor injuries as a result of food poisoning yesterday in Paraguay," said message on Aerosmith's website on Wednesday. "He was taken to the hospital where he was treated and released. Last night's show has been postponed until today. Steven would like to sincerely apologize to his fans in Paraguay for the inconvenience and hopes to see them all tonight."
The rock band is scheduled to tour South and Central America and Japan through December, has not commented.
Tyler has also been working with the group on new music and said in September that a new Aerosmith album could be released as early as March 2012. It would mark the band's first major record in about eight years. Tyler said in March of this year that he and guitarist Joe Perry recently "sent smoke signals" after months of not speaking and had hinted that they may produce new music within months.
Tyler is also set to soon resume his duties as one of three judges on the FOX show "American Idol." Earlier this year, he had signed a multi-year contract, reportedly worth $18 million, to return to the show for his second season. The reality show debuted in 2002. Season 11 is set to premiere in January 2012.
