Bruce Springsteen’s September tour dates have been postponed because of his ongoing battle with peptic ulcer disease, as per the statement posted on his social media account. His medical team advised him to take the month off for treatment, so he decided to postpone the remaining of his September shows.
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band issued a statement expressing their regret for the cancellation and their commitment to return to the stage soon. Springsteen himself added, “Over here on E Street, we’re heartbroken to have to postpone these shows. First, apologies to our fabulous Philly fans who we missed a few weeks ago. We’ll be back to pick these shows up and then some. Thank you for your understanding and support. We’ve been having a blast at our US shows, and we’re looking forward to more great times. We’ll be back soon.” The message was signed with warm regards, “Love and God bless all, Bruce.”
These cancellations come after Bruce Springsteen missed scheduled dates in Philadelphia on August 16 and 18 because of an undisclosed illness, with both dates rescheduled for August 21 and 23, 2024. He has been travelling since then, delivering energetic performances that sometimes lasted three hours.
Bruce Springsteen has a long recovery period ahead of him since he was previously scheduled to take October off, with the tour resuming on November 3 in Vancouver, British Columbia. The itinerary then includes stops in Canada and the West Coast before concluding in San Francisco on December 12.
