Bruce Springsteen Addresses Show Postponements in Video Message

Following the postponements of several shows in Marseille, Prague and Milan due to “vocal issues,” Bruce Springsteen took to social media to apologize to fans.

“Hey, it’s Bruce Springsteen. I’m in Marseille. Unfortunately, I could not sing for you,” says Bruce in his video message. “But we will be back — to Marseille, to Prague and to Milan — to give you the show of your life. That, I promise you.”

“In the meantime, I’d like to thank our Irish fans, our British fans, our fans in Wales for giving us a series of shows that [were] deeply memorable and we just had great times,” he continues. “We’ll be back, comin’ back to Madrid and Barcelona, where we plan to rock you into the ground. Alright, be seeing you soon. Bye bye.”

The message is followed by a video montage of Bruce & The E Street Band‘s U.K. shows.

Springsteen announced the postponements over the weekend in a statement posted to the band’s website.

“Following yesterday’s postponement in Marseille due to vocal issues, further examination and consulting has led doctors to determine that Bruce should not perform for the next ten days,” it read.

It continued: With this in mind, additional postponements are required for Airport Letnany in Prague (originally scheduled for May 28) and San Siro Stadium in Milan (originally scheduled for June 1 and 3). New dates for these shows will be announced shortly. Those wishing a refund will be able to obtain it at their original point of purchase. Bruce is recuperating comfortably, and he and the E Street Band look forward to resuming their hugely successful European stadium tour on June 12 in Madrid at the magnificent Civitas Metropolitan.”

Bruce and the band will resume their tour June 12 in Madrid.
