Bruce Springsteen postpones shows due to ‘vocal issues’



Bruce Springsteen has postponed a number of shows due to “vocal issues”.

On Saturday, Springsteen was forced to postpone a date in Marseille “due to vocal issues”, an Instagram post on his account said.

“Further examination and consulting has (sic) led doctors to determine that Bruce should not perform for the next 10 days,” said a later post.

His European stadium tour with the E Street Band is now set to resume on 12 June in Madrid.

“Additional postponements are required for Airport Letnany in Prague (originally scheduled for May 28) and San Siro Stadium in Milan (originally scheduled for June 1 and 3),” the statement also said.

“New dates for these shows will be announced shortly.

“Those wishing a refund will be able to obtain it at their original point of purchase.

“Bruce is recuperating comfortably, and he and the E Street Band look forward to resuming their hugely successful European stadium tour on June 12 in Madrid at the magnificent Civitas Metropolitan.”

Springsteen and the E Street Band played shows in Belfast, Kilkenny, Cork, and Dublin earlier this month.

He previously rescheduled dates last August in the US after being taken ill and over other issues cancelled planned concerts in March 2023.

The American singer, 74, and his E Street Band played Sunderland’s Stadium of Light last Wednesday, where he said the weather was particularly wet.

As Springsteen was honoured at London’s Ivor Novello Awards last Thursday, he said: “We just…. came out of the plane in Sunderland last night, [it was] hellacious weather.

“Driving rainstorm, the wind blowing, blowing, blowing, and standing… in front of me, in the rain, I realised: ‘These are my people’.”

Springsteen also treated the audience to his song Thunder Road after Paul McCartney presented him with his Ivors Academy Fellowship.

He is the first international songwriter to be inducted into the fellowship.
