Illness Forces Bruce Springsteen & E Street Band To Postpone Shows


Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band have been forced to call off some shows due to illness.

Springsteen had confirmed plans to start this tour last year, which was to see him and the band take to the stage across the US in March, having performed in North America in February.

They are to also hit Europe and America later this year.

“After six years, I’m looking forward to seeing our great and loyal fans next year”, Springsteen said in a statement.

“And I’m looking forward to once again sharing the stage with the legendary E Street Band. See you out there, next year – and beyond!”.

While Springsteen and co are due to hit the UK and Europe later this year, their recent shows at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio on March 9, and their gig at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on March 12 were called off due to illness.

“a temporary situation”

Following this, illness has struck again, with Springsteen and the E Street Band’s show at the MVP in Alabany, New York falling by the wayside.

“Due to illness, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s concert at Mohegan Sun Arena on Sunday March 12 has been postponed. We are working on rescheduling the date so please hold on to your tickets as they will be valid for the rescheduled show”, they said in a statement shared via social media.

E Street band member Steven Van Zandt was quick to assure fans that these postponements have not been caused by serious illness, adding that the shows are just “postponed”, not cancelled.

“No need to be anxious or afraid. Nothing serious. Just a temporary situation. We will all be back in full force very soon”, Van Zandt said.

Springsteen & The E Street Band also insised that all purchased tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled dates.

Their next show is due to take place in Philadelphia’s Fargo Center in Pennsylvania on March 16.
