• Bruce Springsteen has cancelled concerts
  • He is recovering at the moment
  • THIS is what his statement said

Bruce Springsteen (73) was set to actually play several concerts in September in Philadelphia. But these must now be canceled, as the singer announced on X, formerly Twitter. For many fans, the news is a huge downer as they have expecting to see Bruce on stage for a long time now. After all, Bruce is one of the biggest stars in the world and getting tickets to see him can be a bit tricky!

In an official statement, the artist posted the news to Instagram saying this: "Over here on E Street, we're heartbroken to have to postpone these shows. 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."

Bruce is reeling to come back soon!

Springsteen signed off with, "We’ll be back soon. Love and God bless all." His management also released a statement on behalf of the tour's staff for all fans.  

"Mr. Springsteen is being treated for symptoms of peptic ulcer disease and the decision of his medical advisors is that he should postpone the remainder of his September shows." All that means is that Bruce just needs to rest and recover before he can be on stage again. And it's sadly not the first time that he has had to cancel live performances due to his health.

Also interesting:

Just a few weeks ago, Bruce Springsteen had to postpone performances and said that he had a "disease". It's quite possible that Bruce was suffering from a stomach ulcer even then. While fans are disappointed, they can understand the decision. "Health is most important", it says many times under the tweet. 

As CBS News reports, peptic ulcer disease occurs when an open sore develops on the inside lining of the stomach and the upper portion of the small intestine. The most common symptoms include indigestion, abdominal pain, getting too full too fast, nausea, vomiting, bloating and burping. While it's worrying, it's not the most difficult problem to navigate.

Usually, peptic ulcers are caused by infections, which you can get from coming into contact with another infected person's vomit, stool or saliva. In his statement, Springsteen was sure to thank his fans for their patience and promised to be back on stage shortly.

It is unclear when Bruce will be up and running again, but it looks like it should be sometime before the end of the year! In any case, ticketholders will receive information about the rescheduled concert dates. Springsteen & The E Street Band's 2023 tour kicked off on Feb. 1, and it Bruce's first major tour since The River Tour all the way back in 2017!
