A statement announcing the decision was posted via social media this week to tell fans all September shows would be postponed so Springsteen could receive treatment.

“Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band have postponed all performances currently scheduled for September 2023, beginning with tomorrow’s show scheduled for the JMA Wireless Dome in Syracuse, NY,” the statement reads. “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.”

The post also included a quote from Springsteen himself who shared he and his crew are “heartbroken” to inconvenience fans.

“Over here on E Street, we’re heartbroken to have to postpone these shows,” he wrote. “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. Thank you for your understanding and support. We’ve been having a blast at our US shows and we’re looking forward to more great times. We’ll be back soon. Love and God bless all, Bruce.”

Springsteen’s stadium/arena tour kicked off last month with a show at Chicago’s Wrigley Field and is scheduled to run through December. Cities affected by the September postponement include Syracuse, Baltimore and Pittsburgh.

Wishing The Boss a speedy recovery.
