Springsteen Cancels KC Show, Cites Family Death
Bruce Springsteen canceled a performance in Kansas City, Mo., after his cousin — a road crew member — died.
The death of 36-year-old Lenny Sullivan was announced in a statement on Springsteen’s Web site.
Sullivan was found dead at Kansas City’s Intercontinental Hotel hours before Springsteen and the E Street Band were to take the stage Oct. 26.
Kansas City police spokesman Capt. Rich Lockhart said officers were investigating the death, although he said it was not suspicious.
A call to Springsteen’s publicist was not immediately returned.
The Sprint Center arena said tickets would be refunded.
