That sent the rumor mill into overdrive, forcing the singer to issue a statement to set the record straight.
Tyler says: “It breaks my heart to have left this tour early – the band has never played better… just watch the 100,000 people at Rock In Rio.
“I give you all an A+ for creative speculations, but I certainly did not have a heart attack or a seizure – unless Joe Perry is takin’ a rippin’ lead.
“Sorry to have cut the tour short, but I had to have a procedure that only my doc in the States could perform. We’ve been to Tel Aviv, to Russia, to Rio and all the in between.
“I guess it’s true what they say – that life’s a pisser when eu’re a peein’.”
