Bruce Springsteen Has Stopped His Bellyaching: Rocker Says Peptic Ulcer Problem Resolved


Bruce Springsteen has stopped his bellyachin’.

Apparently, on his SiriusXM Radio show, the beloved rocker says his peptic ulcer has healed. Springsteen cancelled all of his fall shows through the end of the year because of the extreme pain in his tummy.

Little Steven van Zandt confirmed to me weeks ago that Bruce had been playing in pain toward the end of the summer and in the Meadowlands shows.

But Bruce already seemed pretty well in the last few weeks. He played a charity show in New York recently and reportedly sounded and acted like his old self.

Bruce also appeared at the New Jersey Hall of Fame ceremony in which his wife, Patti Scialfa, was honored.

You can tell the ulcer hasn’t changed Bruce’s eating habits. He’s been spotted at a diner in Freehold, New Jersey a lot lately. Maybe he’s trying the rice pudding!

Springsteen and the E Street Band will spend 2024 making up the shows they missed.
