American rock legend Bruce Springsteen announced on Wednesday that he will postpone the rest of the dates of his 2023 tour until next year while he recovers from treatment for a peptic ulcer.
The singer, 74, “has continued to recover steadily” and will continue treatment for the rest of the year on medical advice, according to a statement.
«Thank you to all my friends and fans for your good wishes, encouragement and support. “I’m recovering and I can’t wait to see you all next year,” Springsteen, nicknamed The Boss, said in the statement.
Springsteen has been on tour with his “E Street Band” since the beginning of the year. But earlier this month he announced that he would postpone the September concerts in the United States due to his illness. He also postponed two shows in August due to an illness he did not specify.
“Rescheduled dates for each of the 2023 shows, including those postponed earlier this month, will be announced next week and will all take place at their originally scheduled venues,” the statement noted.
If you are unable to attend on the new dates, a refund may be requested, it added.
Author of great hits such as Streets of Philadelphia and Dancing in the Dark, Springsteen has sold more than 150 million records.
