American rock legend Bruce Springsteen announced on September 27 that he would postpone the remaining dates of his 2023 tour to next year while recovering from treatment for peptic ulcer disease.
According to the statement, the 74-year-old singer continues to steadily recover and will continue treatment until the end of the year on the recommendation of a doctor.
Thank you to all my friends and fans for their kind wishes, support and encouragement. I’m getting better and I can’t wait to see you all next year,” she said in a statement.
The favorite artist in the role of The Boss has been touring with his E Street Band since the beginning of the year.
But earlier this month, he announced that he was postponing the dates of his September concerts in the US due to his illness. He also postponed two concerts in August due to an unspecified illness.
The rescheduled dates of each of the 2023 shows, including those that were rescheduled earlier this month, will be announced next week, and they will all take place at the originally scheduled locations, according to a statement on Wednesday.
Springsteen, the performer of such mega-hits as Born to Run and Dancing in the Dark, has sold more than 150 million records.
Stomach ulcers are open ulcers that develop in the inner lining of the stomach and in the upper part of the small intestine. The most common symptom is abdominal pain.
Springsteen’s current tour is his first concert with the E Street Band since 2017, and he toured most of 2023.
He traveled through the United States before meeting with the UK and Europe, and then returned to the United States in August.
Shortly before announcing his ulcer, the boss played a three-hour continuous set in his home state of New Jersey under the full moon of late summer, and at one point he tore his shirt to the delight of tens of thousands of fans.
Springsteen is known for his marathon shows, the longest of which was more than four hours, a performance he held in Helsinki in 2012.
