Music legend Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have announced the postponement of all their scheduled tour dates for September. The reason behind this decision is that the iconic singer/songwriter is currently receiving treatment for symptoms of peptic ulcer disease.
Springsteen, who is 73 years old, expressed his heartfelt disappointment in a statement shared on Twitter. He extended his apologies to the devoted fans in Philadelphia, acknowledging that the band had missed performing for them a few weeks earlier. However, he reassured everyone that they would be returning to make up for the postponed shows. Springsteen expressed his gratitude for the understanding and support of the fans and emphasized that, despite the current setback, he and the band were having an amazing time performing in the United States.
This recent announcement follows the band’s previous postponement of two shows in Philadelphia last month, citing illness as the cause.
The affected September tour dates include the concert in Syracuse, N.Y., as well as upcoming shows in Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Uncasville, Conn., Albany, N.Y., Columbus, Ohio, and Washington D.C. Makeup dates have not yet been announced, but ticketholders can expect to be notified once this information becomes available.
