Springsteen Illness: The Reason Behind Postponed Concert

Bruce Springsteen’s scheduled performance at the MVP Arena in New York on Tuesday has been postponed for the third time in a week by the New Jersey rocker, who cited illness as the reason in a tweet Sunday but did not elaborate.

The cancellations come just one month into Springsteen’s first major tour in six years.

The Boss also gave himself and his E Street Band sick days last Thursday, when they were supposed to perform in Columbus, Ohio, and again on Sunday, when they were supposed to perform at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.

Is Springsteen’s Illness Specified?

Springsteen’s social media posts lacked specifics. Though the latest postponement was blamed on illness, the Twitter feed did not specify who was ill or what type of illness was involved.

“Due to illness, Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’s concert at MVP Arena in Albany on Tuesday, March 14 has been postponed,” the post said. “We are working on rescheduling the date so please hold on to your tickets as they will be valid for the rescheduled show.”

A Tweet from Bruce Springsteen’s official Twitter handles about the show postponed. You can see the Tweet below.

The post made no mention of the impending winter storm that is expected to hit Albany late Monday. According to the National Weather Service, the Capitol Region will receive 12 to 15 inches of snow beginning Monday afternoon.

Little Steven Van Zandt, a member of the E Street Band, tweeted an encouraging message about the concert cancellations on Saturday, saying: “No need to be anxious or afraid. Nothing serious. Just a temporary situation. We will all be back in full force very soon.”

Van Zandt also stated that the postponed shows would take place.

“Postponed,” Van Zandt tweeted. “We Don’t cancel.”

Springsteen, 73, kicked off the tour on Feb. 1 in Tampa, Florida, in front of 20,000 fans, most of whom stood through the 28-song arena set, which included hits like “Born to Run,” “Glory Days,” “Rosalita,” “Promised Land,” and “Backstreets.”

Covid Impact On Springsteen

Due to COVID, some band members, including Van Zandt, Nils Lofgren, Jake Clemons, and Soozie Tyrell, have had to skip gigs on the band’s current tour. The COVID that has been spreading throughout the band has not yet led to any problems that will persist over the long term.

The challenges arise a few months after Springsteen published his most recent album, “Only the Strong Survive,” in November of last year.
