Listen to Aerosmith on iHeartRadio

Aerosmith is reluctantly withdrawing from a pair of tour stops in Asia this week.  The band issued a statement explaining that their festival gig in Shanghai on Wednesday and another in Taipei on Saturday have been canceled, but the rockers aren't giving much insight into the reason behind the cancellations. 

Frontman Steven Tyler only said that they are unable to perform due to "uncontrollable circumstances."  Tyler and his bandmates said they were really looking forward to playing for their fans in China and Taiwan, and call the latest turn of events a major disappointment.

Aerosmith's next live performance is currently scheduled to take place August 30th in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
