Bruce Springsteen postpones shows over stomach ulcer -Facts And Details
The NHS, the UK’s National Health Service, says that stomach ulcers can cause a burning or gnawing pain in the abdomen, as well as indigestion, heartburn, acid reflux, and nausea.
Springsteen had already called off two concerts in August due to the illness, and he was scheduled to play eight more shows in September. However, his doctors have advised him to take a break from touring to focus on his health.
In a statement, Springsteen said that he and his E Street Band were “heartbroken” to have to postpone the shows, but that they wanted to make sure he was able to get the treatment he needs. He also apologized to his fans in Philadelphia, who were scheduled to see him perform on August 16 and 18.
Springsteen said that he and his band are “looking forward to more great times” and that they will be back “soon.” The new dates for the postponed shows have not yet been announced.
In addition to the physical symptoms of peptic ulcer disease, the condition can also cause emotional distress. Springsteen has been open about his struggles with mental health in the past, and it is possible that the stress of touring has contributed to his illness.
It is important to note that peptic ulcer disease is a treatable condition. With medication and lifestyle changes, most people can recover and return to their normal activities. Springsteen’s fans are wishing him a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him back on stage soon.
