Few artists have achieved the iconic status that the legendary Bruce Springsteen, 73, enjoys. Not only is he charming and talented, but he has also impressively built a career both as a solo artist and with his band, the "E Street Band."
Springsteen made his global debut with the folk-rock album "Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J." in 1973. Since then, he has released several albums, including hits like "The River," "Born to Run," and "Nebraska."
His most significant commercial success came with "Born in the U.S.A," which remains Springsteen's best-selling album, with approximately 30 million copies sold.
On Thursday, disheartening news reached all Springsteen fans. Bruce Springsteen, 73, and his band "E Street Band" have postponed all scheduled concerts for September due to illness, reports NTB.
The decision to postpone the concerts was made by Bruce Springsteen's medical team. Springsteen needs treatment for stomach ulcers and is therefore postponing all upcoming concerts.
"We are devastated to have to postpone these concerts. We first and foremost apologize to our amazing fans in Philly whom we missed a few weeks ago. We will be back to make up for these concerts, and even more," said Springsteen in a statement, adding:
"Thank you for your understanding and support. We've had an incredible time at our U.S. concerts, and we look forward to more great moments. We will be back soon," Springsteen stated.
In total, the rock legend has sold more than 65 million albums in the U.S. and 200 million worldwide. He has won several awards, including twenty Grammy Awards, two Golden Globes, and one Oscar.
