Bruce Springsteen & E Street Band have postponed several U.S. concerts due to illness.
The band was forced to postpone their concerts at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, MVP Arena in Albany, New York, and Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. The exact details about the illness were not provided. However, E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt reassured fans on Twitter that it was not a serious situation, and the concerts would be rescheduled soon. The group was then set to perform next at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on March 16th.
This was not the first time that Springsteen has had to perform without some of his E Street bandmates. Earlier this year, both Van Zandt and violinist/singer Soozie Tyrel tested positive for COVID-19, forcing them to miss the American Airlines Center concert in Dallas on Feb 10th.
Springsteen’s wife, singer/guitarist Patti Scialfa, was also absent from the stage for undisclosed reasons.
