Bruce Springsteen Updates Fans About Painful Condition Forcing Tour Cancelation

The Boss posted a statement on his X platform to inform fans that the Bruce Springsteen and E Street Band’s 2023 tour will be postponed until 2024 amid his painful condition and his doctor’s advice. The statement read:

“Bruce Springsteen has continued to recover steadily from peptic ulcer disease over the past few weeks and will continue treatment through the rest of the year on doctor’s advice. With this in mind, and out of an abundance of caution, all remaining 2023 tour dates for Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band will be postponed until 2024.”

Springsteen had initially announced that he was postponing all of his September 2023 dates. He was being treated for symptoms related to peptic ulcer disease. According to experts, the ulcers can cause extreme pain in the stomach due to problems in the small intestine. Although the singer was recovering ‘steadily,’ they had to cancel the tour altogether.

His statement on X went on to also inform fans about rescheduled dates, tickets and refunds. He wrote:

“Rescheduled dates for each of the 2023 shows, including those postponed earlier this month, will be announced next week, all taking place at their originally scheduled venues. When the new 2024 dates are announced, those unable to attend on the new date who purchased their tickets through official ticketing companies have 30 days to request a refund. All tickets for postponed performances will remain valid for the newly announced dates.”

Bruce also added a few personal words to thank fans for their support by saying:

“Thanks to all my friends and fans for your good wishes, encouragement, and support. I’m on the mend and can’t wait to see you all next year.”
