Bruce Springsteen postpones concerts as he deals with medical condition
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have postponed all performances for September as the legend deals with symptoms of peptic ulcer disease.
Bruce Springsteen announced all of his concerts for September 2023 have been postponed as he deals with symptoms from peptic ulcer disease.
"Over here on E Street, we’re heartbroken to have to postpone these shows," Springsteen said in a statement shared to social media Wednesday.
"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. Love and God bless all, Bruce."
A representative for Springsteen did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital's request for comment.
Springsteen previously canceled two shows in August, one just hours before the show. At the time, the musician cited an unspecified illness.
The rock star has been touring steadily since Feb. 1. He kicked things off in Tampa, Florida, then took the show to Europe before returning to the U.S. He has not taken any significant breaks, although he did postpone a handful of shows in March due to illness.
Concerts were canceled in Albany, New York; Columbus, Ohio; and Uncasville, Connecticut, and when the announcement for those cancellations was made, he did not share many details about why.
Now, Springsteen has revealed he's dealing with symptoms of peptic ulcer disease (PUD). Peptic ulcers develop inside the stomach or small intestines, according to the Mayo Clinic. The most common symptom is stomach pain.
Springsteen was advised by his medical team to postpone his September concert dates, according to his social media post.
The "Born in the U.S.A." rocker's November tour dates are scheduled for Canada as he skips the East Coast due to the illness. His tour is scheduled to end with a series of dates in Arizona and California. The final concert is slated for Dec. 10 in San Francisco.
