Bruce Springsteen has postponed his Philadelphia concerts with the E Street Band this week due to an unspecified illness. The announcement was made on social media just hours before he was set to perform.
“Due to Bruce Springsteen having been taken ill, his concerts with The E Street Band at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia on August 16 and 18 have been postponed,” a message posted on Springsteen’s official Twitter account reads. “We are working on rescheduling the dates so please hold on to your tickets as they will be valid for the rescheduled shows.”
This comes as a disappointment to fans who were eagerly anticipating the performances. Springsteen’s 2023 tour, his first in seven years, kicked off last month and has been highly anticipated by fans around the world.
This is not the first time that Springsteen has faced health-related issues during this tour. In March, he had to postpone three consecutive shows due to an unspecified illness. In April, both Springsteen and his wife, Patti Scialfa, contracted COVID-19 and had to cancel a planned appearance at the American Music Honors award show.
Despite these setbacks, Springsteen has been determined to continue with his tour. The North American leg of the tour is scheduled to continue through the end of December, with stops across the U.S. and Canada.
Rescheduling and Ticket Validity
Fans who were looking forward to the Philadelphia concerts need not worry, as the dates will be rescheduled. Springsteen’s team is currently working on finding new dates for the shows. In the meantime, ticket holders are advised to hold on to their tickets, as they will be valid for the rescheduled shows.
Springsteen’s tour has been highly anticipated, especially after the release of his 2020 album, ‘Letter To You,’ which was recorded with the E Street Band. The tour has been a celebration of Springsteen’s music and career, with fans eagerly awaiting the chance to see him perform live once again.
After the canceled Philadelphia shows, Springsteen is scheduled to perform at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, next week. The tour will then continue with shows in various cities, including his home state of New Jersey, before wrapping up in San Francisco on December 8.
Despite the setbacks, Springsteen remains optimistic and determined to continue with his tour. Fans can stay updated on any further announcements and rescheduled dates by visiting Springsteen’s official website.
