September 7, 2023 by No Comments

Bruce Springsteen has decided to cancel all of his remaining tour dates for the month of September due to health concerns. In a social media statement, he revealed that he is currently dealing with peptic ulcer disease and has received medical advice to take the entire month off for necessary treatment. Springsteen followed this announcement with a heartfelt apology and a commitment to return to performing in the future, as attributed to him.

The statement read: “Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have postponed all performances currently scheduled for September 2023, beginning with tomorrow’s show scheduled for the JMA Wireless Dome in Syracuse, NY,” It continued: “Mr. Springsteen is being treated for symptoms of peptic ulcer disease and the decision of his medical advisors is that he should postpone the remainder of his September shows.”

This decision to postpone the September tour dates comes after Springsteen had previously missed shows in Philadelphia on August 16 and 18 due to an undisclosed illness, which were later rescheduled for August 21 and 23, 2024.

After resuming his tour, Springsteen had been giving remarkable performances, some lasting up to three hours. His most recent concerts took place at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium from August 30 to September 3, marking a return to the stage eight months after what was initially intended to be the tour’s finale.

It’s worth noting that Springsteen will have more time to recover, as he had already scheduled October as a month off before the recent cancellations, with the tour originally set for a month-long break starting on September 29. The next date on his calendar is November 3 in Vancouver, BC, followed by a series of shows across Canada and the west coast, concluding in San Francisco on December 12.
