Asuncion - Steven Tyler, the lead singer of rock band Aerosmith, had a "small accident" on Tuesday that forced him to postpone a planned show in Paraguay by one day, a spokesperson for the local concert organisers said.
Tyler received stitches and had emergency dental work done during a nearly four-hour stay at the La Costa medical centre in Paraguay's capital, according to a hospital statement. He was in good condition when discharged.
The 63-year-old frontman reportedly suffered cuts to his face and lost two of his teeth after falling in his hotel bathroom, the country's largest newspaper ABC said.
Aerosmith planned to perform in the South American nation of Paraguay on Tuesday during a tour through Latin America.
"Mr Tyler had a small accident that prevents him from staging the concert tonight," Marcelo Antunez, a spokesperson for the local concert organisers, told reporters.
"He is fine, he's in his hotel but he's not able to do the concert," Antunez said, adding the show would be postponed until Wednesday.
Nicolas Garzia, whose firm organised the Paraguay gig, said via Twitter that Tyler had been dehydrated and was suffering gastrointestinal problems.
A man who identified himself as Gustavo Perez, a bellboy at the Bourbon hotel near Asuncion, told a local radio that Tyler slipped when he was taking a shower and "had a nasty fall".
Two years ago, Tyler broke his shoulder after falling off the stage during a concert in South Dakota, forcing the group to scrap the rest of its North American tour that summer and aggravating tensions within the band.
Tyler has signed up for a second season as a judge on the singing talent show American Idol, and he published a memoir this year called Does this Noise in My Head Bother You?
