Bruce Springsteen postpones September tour concerts over peptic ulcer as singer reveals he's 'heartbroken' | The Sun

BRUCE Springsteen and the E Street Band have canceled all scheduled tour performances during the month of September.

The postponement comes just weeks after two concerts in Philadelphia were canceled due to the rocker's illness.

The 73-year-old legendary singer is being treated for symptoms of peptic ulcer disease, according to a statement released via social media.

His doctors advised him to postpone currently scheduled shows throughout the month of September, beginning with Thursday's concert in Syracuse, New York.

It's unclear if the remaining concerts, scheduled throughout November and December, will be performed as planned.

Springsteen commented: "Over here on E Street, we’re heartbroken to have to postpone these shows.

"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 U.S. shows and we’re looking forward to more great times. We’ll be back soon."

Springsteen began his nationwide tour earlier this year and recently returned from a European stadium tour.
