Bruce Springsteen will postpone all his concerts from 2023 to 2024 to “recover from an ulcer,” his team announced in a press release published this Wednesday. The “Boss”, 74 years old, is undergoing treatment for this disease. At the beginning of September, his team had already announced that “his medical advisors have decided that he must postpone the rest of his concerts” planned for the same month. Bruce Springsteen, with a reputation as a stage beast, then declared that canceling these performances “broke his heart”, while promising his fans to be “back soon”.
Springsteen has been touring with his musicians, the “E Street Band,” since the beginning of the year. He had already canceled two dates in August due to “illness”, without specifying their nature.
The New Jersey singer, whose impressive gallery of hits includes Streets of Philadelphia and Dancing in the Dark, is extremely popular in the United States. Born into a Neapolitan-Irish family of working-class origins, he puts American everyday life to music, with rock, country, blues and even soul influences. Oscar winner for Streets of Philadelphia, he has accumulated awards during a long career, and sold more than 150 million records. The album Born in the USA alone sold 30 million copies.
