Joe Perry has been forced to postpone his 2018 solo tour after his hospitalisation earlier this month.
The 68-year-old guitarist was taken into hospital after he experienced breathing difficulties earlier this month, whilst on stage at Madison Square Garden in New York City, but Joe has since left the medical facility where he was receiving treatment and is now at home resting up.
Unfortunately for fans though, the veteran rocker has been forced to postpone his planned performances, which were due to kick off on November 30, until 2019.
Joe wrote on Instagram: “Just wanted to thank everyone for all of the kind messages I’ve received this week. I’m home and doing well, but the doctor recommends a bit more downtime before getting out to rock again, so regrettably I had to cancel my upcoming tour dates.
“Was really looking forward to playing these shows with Brad and Gary and seeing all of you who were planning to come out and support us. We will be back out as soon as possible. Wishing you all happy holidays and looking forward to seeing you in 2019. (sic)”
The Aerosmith star previously took to Twitter to update his fans on his progress, writing: “Doing well, thanks for all the love and support!”
It was previously reported that Joe collapsed backstage at Madison Square Garden before he was taken into hospital.
And Joe’s rep subsequently released a statement confirming he was at a hospital in New York.
A statement read: “Following a guest performance during Billy Joel’s show last night at Madison Square Garden, Joe Perry experienced shortness of breath and was treated backstage by paramedics who gave the guitarist oxygen and used a tracheal tube to clear his airway before taking him to a hospital.
“This morning Perry remains in the hospital where he is alert and responsive.”
