Bruce Springsteen, 73, Battling ‘Mystery Illness’

Bruce Springsteen has postponed two concerts in Philadelphia due to a mystery illness.

The music icon, 73. was due to perform with The E Street Band at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia on August 16 and 18 – but a tweet was sent on Wednesday announcing the shows would be rescheduled.

The post from the singer’s account read: ‘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. 

‘We are working on rescheduling the dates so please hold on to your tickets as they will be valid for the rescheduled shows.’

Bruce has been traveling the world for his latest tour, Springsteen and E Street Band 2023 Tour.

His tour consists of 37 shows in 32 locations.

Springsteen is a 20-time Grammy Award winner whose hits include Born to Run, Dancing in the Dark and Glory Days.

Springsteen has released 20 studio albums in his six-decade career.

His most recent studio album with E Street Band’s – Letter To You, which topped the charts in eleven countries – marked their first recording live together in decades.

Springsteen is one of the world’s best-selling artists – alongside his Grammys he has two Golden Globes, an Oscar, and a Special Tony Award, to his name.

He was also inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Back in May Springsteen unintentionally made his Amsterdam show one fans won’t soon forget after he took a major tumble on stage.

The I’m On Fire singer  drew gasps from fans as he tripped and fell after climbing several steps on the stage.

Fans watched The Boss roll onto his back and lay on the floor with his guitar still in hand before his concerned colleagues promptly rushed over to assist him.

His guitarist stepped in to remove his instrument while two concert workers manually hoisted Bruce back onto his feet.  

Fortunately, the fall didn’t shake Bruce up too much. Alleviating any concerns his fans may have had, Bruce quickly smiled before addressing the audience.
