A Message From Istanbul

As BKM and MAP, we have cancelled the Aerosmith concert due to National Mourning.

Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, "I woke up this morning to the horrific news of the mining disaster in Soma, Turkey. My heartfelt prayers go out to those who have died, those who are still trapped, and their families. We are holding the people of Turkey close to our hearts and respecting the three days of mourning for a saddened nation."

Joe Perry, "I feel deep profound sorrow for the workers and their families who have been killed or injured in this terrible disaster. As soon as I heard the news, I called my wife in America and me and my families hearts and prayers go out to the families and workers who were killed or injured. Words can't express the sorrow that we feel."

Joey Kramer, "I extend my deepest condolences to those who have been affected by the tragedy here in Turkey. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you."

Tom Hamilton, "All of the members of Aerosmith are saddened by the loss of the miners in Soma. Our thoughts will be with the families of those killed and injured. We will hope for the survival of as many of the trapped miners as possible”

Brad Whitford, "I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to the families who have lost loved ones, and to the co-workers and to the people of Turkey"

We wish mercy from God to the miners we’ve lost, condolences and patience to their families and loved ones. We hope that the miners who are still trapped underground will be saved soon and be safe and sound.

Best Regards,
