Bruce Springsteen postpones rest of 2023 tour dates
Bruce Springsteen postpones remaining tour dates as he recovers from peptic ulcer disease.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's 2023 tour will be postponed until 2024, citing doctor's advice.

The Boss, who last week celebrated his 74th birthday, is "steadily recovering" from peptic ulcer disease, a press release read. "Out of an abundance of caution," the remainder of this year's tour has been pushed to next year.

The press statement was released Wednesday.

The statement says Springsteen has continued to recover after being treated for symptoms of peptic ulcer disease earlier this month, and that medical advisors told him that he should postpone the remainder of his 2023 tour dates.

The video in the media player is from a previous report.

"With this in mind, and out of an abundance of caution, all remaining 2023 tour dates for Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band will be postponed until 2024," Springsteen said in a statement. "Thanks to all my friends and fans for your good wishes, encouragement, and support. I'm on the mend and can't wait to see you all next year."

Earlier this month, 'The Boss' announced the postponement of all September shows, including dates in Syracuse, New York, Uncasville, Connecticut, and Albany.

Peptic ulcers are open sores that develop on the inside lining of your stomach and the upper portion of your small intestine. The most common symptom of a peptic ulcer is stomach pain.
