“The Boss” needs a rest. The American Singer Bruce Springsteen, huge rock star and interpreter of “Born in the USA”, announced on Wednesday the postponement of his concerts planned in the United States in September. In a statement on social media, he claims he has a peptic ulcer disease and doctors have advised him to take the rest of the month off for treatment.
“Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have postponed all performances currently scheduled for September 2023, beginning with tomorrow’s show scheduled at the JMA Wireless Dome in Syracuse, New York,” the statement read.
Nicknamed the “Boss”, Springsteen, 73, has a reputation for being a showman. He is in world Tour with its musicians, the “E Street Band”, since the beginning of the year and each time provides performances of more than two and a half hours, like in Paris in May. He had already canceled two dates in August due to “illness”, without specifying the nature.
“My apologies to our fabulous Philly fans who missed us a few weeks ago,” he wrote on Instagram. We will be back to repeat these shows and more. Thank you for your understanding and support. We had a great time at our concerts in the United States and look forward to more great times”. The decision to cancel these eight dates “breaks his heart”, he said, while promising his fans “to come back soon”.

The canceled concerts in Philadelphia on August 16 and 18 have already been postponed to August 21 and 23, 2024. Dates will be found later for the canceled shows. The next date on her calendar is November 3 in Vancouver (Canada) and the tour concludes in San Francisco on December 12. A few places are still available, at a golden price.
