Bruce Springsteen Cancels Show in Marseille, France “Unable to Sing and Perform” After Grueling Schedule Abroad


Bruce Springsteen has cancelled his Marseille, France show tonight at the last minute.

He posted an announcement: “Due to a loss of voice and on medical orders, Bruce Springsteen is unable to sing and perform this evening. This evening’s concert planned at the Orange Vélodrome in Marseilles has unfortunately been postponed to a later date.”

The very young at heart 74 year old Springsteen and the E Street Band have been burning it in the US and recently in England and Ireland. Marseille would have been show number 17 on this leg. Bruce has had health issues cancel shows a lot this last year, including an 8 month break because of a painful peptic ulcer.

But the Boss is only human. His next show is three days from now in Prague. Speedy recovery!

PS Bruce was certainly singing up a storm in Dublin. See below.
