Tyler was staying at the Bourbon Hotel in Paraguay, and thanks to his tour manager, located a nearby hospital to stitch up his eye, re-align his face, and fix his broken tooth. Now, that must have been a pretty heavy fall. And knowing what we know, Mr. Tyler can be a little accident prone. So we have to wonder. Who do you think suffered more damage: Steven Tyler's face, or the shower stall?
Aerosmith's lead guitarist, Joe Perry, took to Twitter to support his bandmate the night of the re-scheduled Asuncion concert: "Steven even played harp with his busted lip my mind was blown. He put on one of his best shows ever."
Meanwhile, a bellboy at the hotel, Gustavo Perez, was quoted by The Daily Mail as saying only, "he had a nasty fall." Tyler got a little more specific while on the phone with Matt Lauer, describing:
"I fell on my face. I just passed out and I woke up with the water running on me."
