Bruce Springsteen will postpone Prague and Milan shows due to “vocal issues”

Bruce Springsteen has announced he will postpone his Prague and Milan shows due to “vocal issues”.

Springsteen, who is currently embarking on his UK/EU tour, recently postponed his show in Marseille citing “vocal issues and under doctor’s direction”.

Now, the musician has announced via social media that he will reschedule his upcoming shows at Airport Letnany in Prague (May 28) and San Siro Stadium in Milan (June 1 and 3), with new dates to be announced shortly.

“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,” a statement from the musician read.


“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.”

The Boss previously had to reschedule his 2023 US tour dates following his continuing battle with peptic ulcer disease.


A statement posted to social media noted that while Springsteen had “continued to recover steadily”, he had been advised to “continue treatment through the rest of the year” per consultations with his doctor.

We caught Springsteen at his Hyde Park shows last July, giving his concert a full five stars: “A force of personality like no other, if Springsteen’s ultimate goal really is to change lives by night, then it’s mission accomplished here. Punctuated with lessons of life, love and loss, he’s hit another home run at Hyde Park.”

Springsteen also recently became the first international Fellow of the Ivor Novello Academy, following in the footsteps of Elton JohnKate BushAnnie Lennox and Paul McCartney.

In his speech, the New Jersey rocker admitted “while I was stone-cold born in the USA, at 16 I desperately yearned to be British”: “I had a pretty good fake British accent – that’s what the checkout girls at the local supermarket thought. But I have had a lot of wonderful history here.”


The night also saw Beatles legend Paul McCartney jokingly roast him before introducing him to the stage, claiming: “He’s never worked a day in his life”.

Elsewhere, The Simpsons voice actor Hank Azaria recently announced that he is starting his own Bruce Springsteen tribute band, named Hank Azaria & The EZ Street Band.
