Aerosmith has postponed the first 13 dates of its 50-date U.S. tour following a gas station fire that left drummer Joey Kramer with second-degree burns.


The affected dates were to begin Aug. 14 in Raleigh, N.C., hitting 12 cities through Sept. 7; all will be rescheduled. Shows from Sept. 9 to Dec. 9 remain unchanged. This marks the second setback to the Aerosmith tour; 18 earlier dates were postponed following a knee injury to Steven Tyler in April.

"It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
