Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band Postponing September Shows – Rolling Stone

Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band have postponed all shows scheduled for September, starting with Thursday’s show at the JMA Wireless Dome in Syracuse, New York.

a mail X, formerly Twitter, said Wednesday that the singer is receiving treatment for symptoms of peptic ulcer disease and that the postponement follows “the decision of his medical advisors.”

In a statement to fans, Boss wrote that he and the band are “saddened to have had to postpone these shows.” He continued, “First, I apologize to the amazing Philadelphia fans that we have been missing for a few weeks. We’ll come back to pick these shows and then some. Thank you for your understanding and support.”

He ended his letter on a hopeful note, saying, “We have enjoyed our shows in the US and look forward to many more great times. We will be back soon.”

Springsteen and The E Street Band were also scheduled to visit several cities across North America this month including Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Vancouver and Toronto. No details of whether their December shows in Englewood and San Francisco were mentioned.

Previously announced in February, this tour follows a six-year break for the E Street Band, their longest since they reformed in 1999.

Shortly after the tour began, Covid quickly reached E Street as band members Stephen Van Zandt and violinist/vocalist Susie Terrell missed their Texas gigs after testing positive; Saxophonist Jake Clemons and half of E Street’s touring backup singers were also absent from subsequent dates.

In March, more performances were postponed “due to illness,” but the group did not disclose the sick members. At the time, Van Zandt assured his fans on social media that there was “no need to worry or be afraid”. Nothing serious. Just a temporary condition. We will all be back in full force very soon. When asked if the performances have been postponed or cancelled, the guitarist added, “It’s been postponed. We don’t cancel.”
