THURSDAY, Sept. 7, 2023 (HealthDay News) — Bruce Springsteen has once again postponed a concert due to illness, this time being treated for peptic ulcer symptoms.
Springsteen announced Wednesday that he would postpone September concerts in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Washington, D.C., Albany and Syracuse, New York, as well as in Connecticut and Ohio, the Associated Press reported.
“It pains us here in the E Street neighborhood to have to postpone these concerts,” Springsteen said in a statement posted on his website and social media. “We will be back to resume these concerts and many more. .”
Peptic ulcer disease causes heartburn, nausea, and abdominal pain due to ulcers in the stomach or small intestine.
This is the first tour in six years for the singer known as “The Boss” and his E Street Band. It started in February in Tampa, Florida. Springsteen also postponed March concerts in Albany, Connecticut, and Columbus, Ohio, due to illness, the Associated Press reported.
Springsteen, 74, is known for his energetic three-hour concerts.
He recently performed three nights of concerts in his home state of New Jersey.
