Bruce Springsteen is stepping away from the stage to focus on his health.
The music legend, 73, has postponed all scheduled concerts with his E Street Band for the month of September as he undergoes treatment for peptic ulcer disease, Access Hollywood has learned.
Bruce issued a statement on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Wednesday evening and issued his regrets for the delayed dates as he follows the advice of his doctors and rests.

We’ll be back to pick these shows up and then some. Thank you for your understanding and support,” the post read. “We’ve been having a blast at our U.S. shows and we’re looking forward to more great times. We’ll be back soon. Love and God bless all, Bruce.”
