Tyler said he had to have a medical procedure that only his doctor who is located in the United States could perform, The Associated Press reported.

He said that he “certainly did not have a heart attack or seizure” in a statement posted to the band’s website.

Last week, Tyler announced via Twitter that the band was going to cancel stops in Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Mexico.
