Steven Tyler revealed how much money he spent drugs in an interview surfaced.

Earlier this week, his band Aerosmith announced they would be canceling upcoming gigs after the singer voluntarily checked himself into rehab.

The 74-year-old relapsed after taking painkillers for foot surgery, after more than a decade of sobriety.

In a 2013 interview on 60 Minutes Australiahe said he had spent a fortune on drugs throughout his life.

Asked if it was true he had spent $20m (£15.9m) on drugs, he said: “No, probably realistically, five or six, easy.

“But that doesn’t matter – you could also say that I sniffed half of Peru… That’s what we did.”

In a statement shared on social media on Tuesday (May 24), Aerosmith said they would have to cancel their first run of shows in June and July for their Las Vegas residency at Park MGM.

“As many of you know, our beloved brother Steven worked on his sobriety for many years,” the band said.

“After foot surgery to prepare for the step and the need to manage pain during the process, he recently relapsed and voluntarily entered a treatment program to focus on his health and recovery.

“We are truly sorry to inform our fans and friends that we have to cancel our first set of Las Vegas residency dates in June and July while he focuses on his well-being.

“We will continue with our 2022 dates from September, and we will notify you of any further updates as soon as possible.”

The statement continued, “We are devastated to have inconvenienced so many of you, especially our most loyal fans who often travel great distances to experience our shows.

“Thank you for your understanding and support of Steven during this time.”

Tyler has been open about his struggles with addiction in the past, revealing in 2019 that his bandmates staged an intervention with him in 1988.
