Bruce Springsteen postpones shows for treatment of peptic ulcer symptoms


Bruce Springsteen announced On Wednesday night, he announced he would postpone scheduled performances with the E Street Band for the rest of September as he is being treated for symptoms of peptic ulcer disease.

The 73-year-old singer was scheduled to perform Thursday in Syracuse, New York, and seven more times at various venues across the Northeast and Ohio over the rest of the month.

“We are heartbroken to have to postpone these shows,” he said in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter. The message continues: “We will be back to resume these shows and much more. Thank you for understanding.”

Springsteen’s medical advisors have made the decision to postpone the shows, according to the announcement. The new list of postponed concerts comes weeks after Springsteen postponed two August concerts due to illness. Those shows have been postponed until next year, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Peptic ulcer disease causes sores to appear on the stomach lining and can cause stomach pain, heartburn, bloating and nausea, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Springsteen and the E Street Band had just capped off a three-show run at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, his home state.
