Trick-or-treaters won't find the light on outside Bruce Springsteen's New Jersey mansion this Halloween.

Springsteen and his wife, Patti Scialfa, say they won't be having their usual elaborate Halloween display featuring masked characters and decorations.

Writing on his Web site, Springsteen blames "catastrophic success."

The 59-year-old rocker and his wife say too many visitors to their Rumson neighborhood raised concerns for the safety of children and parents.
