Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have announced they have postponed all of their September performances as Springsteen is being treated for symptoms of peptic ulcer disease.
A message on Springsteen's website and his official Instagram accoun says the postponement of the September shows is "the decision of his medical advisors."
“Over here on E Street we’re heartbroken to have to postpone these shows,” read a comment from Springsteen included in the statement. "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."
The band previously suspended shows in August due to the "Born in the USA" singer suffering an undisclosed illness.
