Bruce Springsteen has made an unexpected decision to reschedule his September concerts, including tonight’s appearance at the JMA Wireless Dome in Syracuse, citing medical advice.
In an announcement posted on his official website on Wednesday, Bruce Springsteen revealed that he would be deferring his shows for the remainder of the month as he seeks treatment for symptoms associated with “peptic ulcer disease.”
This medical condition is characterized by the formation of ulcers in the stomach or small intestine, leading to discomfort such as heartburn, nausea, and abdominal pain.
The affected performances encompass previously planned stops in various cities, including Baltimore, Philadelphia, Albany, Syracuse (New York), Pittsburgh, Washington, Connecticut, and Ohio.
Expressing his sentiments on the matter, Springsteen stated in a message shared on his website and social media, “Over here on E Street, we’re deeply saddened to have to reschedule these concerts. We are committed to resuming these shows and even more.”
Renowned for his high-octane, three-hour live performances alongside the E Street Band, Springsteen had recently completed a triumphant three-night run of concerts in his home state of New Jersey.
The current tour, which marks the return of Springsteen and the E Street Band after six years, commenced in Tampa, Florida, in February. It’s worth noting that Springsteen had previously postponed shows originally scheduled for Albany, Connecticut, and Columbus, Ohio, in March due to health-related issues.
As the rock legend approaches his 74th birthday later this month, fans eagerly await his return to the stage after his well-deserved recovery.
