Bruce Springsteen is treated for a gastrointestinal problem and postpones several concerts



Bruce Springsteen is postponing all of his September concerts with the E Street Band due to a gastrointestinal problem.

The musician, 73, shared on his verified Instagram on Wednesday that he “is being treated for symptoms of peptic ulcer disease and the decision of his medical advisers is that he should postpone the remainder of his September concerts.”

He included a personal message that read, “Here on E Street, we are heartbroken to have to postpone these shows. First, my apologies to our fabulous Philly fans who we missed a few weeks ago. We will be back to repeat these shows and more.

“Thank you for your understanding and support. We had a great time at our concerts in the United States and look forward to more great times. We will be back soon.”

According to the Cleveland Clinic, peptic ulcer disease “occurs when open sores, or ulcers, form in the stomach or in the first part of the small intestine. Many cases of peptic ulcer disease develop because a bacterial infection eats away at the protective lining of the digestive system.

Springsteen and the E Street Band had eight more concerts scheduled through the end of September, including a Thursday in Syracuse.

The news comes after the crooner, known as The Boss, canceled two shows in the middle of last month and posted a message saying he had “fallen sick”.

Wednesday’s announcement on social media assured ticket holders that information regarding rescheduled dates would soon be available.
