AEROSMITH's concert near Birmingham was canceled within hours of its opening Sunday night (June 6) because of illness, according to the Associated Press.
A faxed statement from Clear Channel Entertainment said the concert, which was also featuring rock band CHEAP TRICK, at the Verizon Wireless Music Center in Oak Mountain State Park has been rescheduled for June 30. No details were released about the illness, but unconfirmed reports suggest that frontman Steven Tyler is experiencing throat problems.
Pelham Police Sgt. Bobby Sasser said police were notified Sunday of the cancelation. He said the amphitheater holds about 11,000. The number of tickets sold was not immediately available.
