The American musician Bruce Springsteen had already postponed his September tour dates because he was advised by doctors to rest while he recovers from peptic ulcer, but now again following doctors advise he was forced to postpone all the remaining 2023 to 2024. The musician celebrated his 74 birthday last September 23.
“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,” the musician said.
Read Bruce Springsteen’s official announcement of the tour postponement:
“Bruce Springsteen has continued to recover steadily from peptic ulcer disease over the past few weeks and will continue treatment through the rest of the year on doctor’s advice. 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.”
“Rescheduled dates for each of the 2023 shows, including those postponed earlier this month, will be announced next week, all taking place at their originally scheduled venues.”
“When the new 2024 dates are announced, those unable to attend on the new date who purchased their tickets through official ticketing companies have 30 days to request a refund. All tickets for postponed performances will remain valid for the newly announced dates,” Bruce Springsteen said.
What is Peptic Ulcer disease?
According to Mayoclinic, the peptic ulcer disease is “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.”
“Peptic ulcers include: Gastric ulcers that occur on the inside of the stomach and Duodenal ulcers that occur on the inside of the upper portion of your small intestine (duodenum)”.
“The most common causes of peptic ulcers are infection with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) and long-term use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) and naproxen sodium (Aleve). Stress and spicy foods do not cause peptic ulcers. However, they can make your symptoms worse.”
