Aerosmith's Perry cancels solo show


Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry is putting down his ax while he goes under the knife.

His spokeswoman Marcee Rondan said Perry is canceling a solo show April 5 in Niagara Falls, N.Y., while he recovers from knee surgery.

The statement released Monday said Perry has needed knee surgery for two years but put off the procedure so he wouldn't miss any Aerosmith tour dates.

The 57-year-old's knee finally gave out early this month after a pair of performances with his two sons. That prompted his doctor to schedule the surgery for March 18.

Rondan says Perry apologizes to his fans for missing the show.
