The singer has since announced rescheduled US tour dates with The E Street Band for 2024. During his latest edition of the ‘From My Home To Yours’ series on SiriusXM (via Music-News), Springsteen referred to himself as “your favourite rock star with a bitch of a bellyache.”
“Let me take a moment and thank my fans affected by our postponed shows for their understanding,” Springsteen elaborated. “I am deeply sorry but this belly thing, despite my ability to laugh at it, has been a monster and is still unfortunately rocking my internal world.”
Prior to the tour’s suspension, Springsteen had performed at East Rutherford’s MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, his home state, closing with his cover of Tom Waits’ ‘Jersey Girl’.
Over the summer, The Boss and his band also played high-profile outdoor concerts at BST Hyde Park in London, which received enthusiastic reviews.
