Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band will not return to the stage in 2023, as The Boss continues to recover from a peptic ulcer.

Having already postponed dates through the end of September, now all dates left this year will be pushed to 2024, according to a statement posted on Springsteen’s social media pages:

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.

Of the shows already canceled in September, only two Philadelphia dates have been rescheduled, not set for August 21 and 23, 2024, at Citizens Bank Park.

The band had a monthlong run through Canadian arenas scheduled for November 2023, before crossing the border for dates in Phoenix, San Diego, Inglewood and San Francisco before year’s end.

Springsteen’s tour ranked No. 2 on Pollstar‘s Mid-Year Top 10, pulling in more than $142.6 million on more than 673,000 tickets.

Peptic ulcer disease causes ulcers to form in the stomach or small intestine that can cause heartburn, nausea and stomach pain.
