Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band have pulled their remaining 2023 tour dates as Springsteen continues to recover from peptic ulcer disease. Among the postponed dates are a November Canadian run and his Dec. 4 and 6 dates at Los Angeles’ Kia Forum.
The postponed dates will move into 2024, with rescheduled dates to be announced next week, according to a statement.
“Bruce Springsteen has continued to recover steadily from peptic ulcer disease over the past few weeks and will continue treatment through the rest of the year on doctor’s advice,” according to the statement released earlier Wednesday (Sept. 27), four days after Springsteen celebrated his 74th birthday. “With this in mind, and out of an abundance of caution, all remaining 2023 tour dates for Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band will be postponed until 2024.”
While the tour has garnered Springsteen some of the best reviews of his long career, this development is the latest rough spot in terms of staying on the road. On Sept. 6, Springsteen announced the postponement of his nine September dates and revealed the peptic ulcer disease diagnosis. That news came after his Aug. 16 and 18 shows in Philadelphia had been postponed (and subsequently rescheduled for August 2024). Three shows in March had also been postponed for unspecified illness.
There were 14 remaining shows on the band’s 2023 schedule, which was set to wrap Dec. 12 at San Francisco’s Chase Center.
Get will soon, Bruce!
