Perry can­cels re­main­der of tour

Calgary Herald - - YOU -

Joe Perry has can­celled his fall tour to take time off after re­cently be­ing hos­pi­tal­ized with breath­ing prob­lems. The Aero­smith gui­tarist’s pub­li­cist said Tues­day the 68-year-old will take the rest of the year off. He had ex­pected to re­turn to the road start­ing Nov. 30. Perry felt short of breath after a guest per­for­mance with Billy Joel at Madi­son Square Gar­den in New York. Paramedics back­stage gave Perry oxy­gen and used a tra­cheal tube to clear his air­way be­fore tak­ing him to the hos­pi­tal. Perry had joined the 69-year-old Joel on stage for a ren­di­tion of Aero­smith’s Walk This Way. Perry says he apol­o­gizes to fans who planned to at­tend his shows. He ex­pects to re­turn next year.
