Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band have postponed the remainder of their September tour dates with plans to ‘pick these shows up and then some’ at a later date, as The Boss undergoes treatment for a gastrointestinal condition.
Bruce Springsteen is postponing the rest of his concerts in September with the E Street Band while he receives treatment for symptoms of peptic ulcer disease. The 73-year-old musician shared on social media on Wednesday that he is being treated for a gastrointestinal condition, and medical advisors recommended that he postpone the remainder of his September shows.
“Over here on E Street, we’re heartbroken to have to postpone these shows,” reads a message attributed to the Boss himself on Instagram. “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,” the message concludes. “We’ll be back soon.”
Springsteen and his band had eight remaining concerts scheduled through the end of September. They played their most recent show on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. The news follows the heels of Springsteen having canceled two shows last month, releasing a message that he had “taken ill.”
The announcement assured ticket holders for the affected dates that information for the rescheduled shows will be forthcoming. The postponed September shows are as follows:
- 7 | JMA Wireless Dome — Syracuse, NY
- 9 | Oriole Park at Camden Yards — Baltimore, MD
- 12 | PPG Paints Arena — Pittsburgh, PA
- 14 | PPG Paints Arena — Pittsburgh, PA
- 16 | Mohegan Sun Arena — Uncasville, CT
- 19 | MVP Arena — Albany, NY
- 21 | Nationwide Arena — Columbus, OH
- 29 | Nationals Park — Washington, DC
The Bosses’ most recent tour has attracted attention for its wildly fluctuating ticket prices enabled by Ticketmaster’s dynamic pricing model. Tickets for the tour were as low as $6 in some markets—while costing thousands in his home market of New Jersey.
