Aerosmith vocalist Steven Tyler dismissed online speculations that he had suffered a heart attack. However, he did not fully clarify the ailment that led his band to cancel the remainder of its South American concert tour.

In September, Aerosmith called off its last four shows in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Mexico because Steven was dealing with “unexpected medical issues” that required immediate care.

The 69-year-old rock star wrote on the official Aerosmith website on Monday: “I give you all an A+ for creative speculations but I certainly did not have a heart attack or a seizure.”

Steven added that he is sorry the band had to cut its tour short; saying “I had to have a procedure that only my doc in the United States could perform.”
