There will be a lot of snow in Albany but no Springsteen. The New Jersey musician, who in a tweet on Sunday cited sickness as the cause but did not provide details, has postponed three concerts in the past week, the most recent being Bruce Springsteen’s scheduled performance on Tuesday at the MVP Arena in New York.
The cancellations occurred one month into Bruce Springsteen’s first significant tour in six years. Additionally, The Boss issued himself and his E Street Band sick days for two scheduled concerts:
One on Sunday at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, and one last Thursday when they were set to play in Columbus, Ohio.
Springsteen’s social media messages lacked specifics. Although the Twitter feed cited illness as the cause of the most recent postponement, it did not mention the person who was ill or the nature of their condition.
The article stated, “Due to illness, Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band’s concert at MVP Arena in Albany on Tuesday, March 14 has been postponed.” “We are working on rescheduling the date so please hold on to your tickets as they will be valid for the rescheduled show.”

The post did not mention a significant winter storm expected to strike Albany late Monday. The National Weather Service forecasts 12 to 15 inches of snow beginning Monday afternoon for the Capitol Region area.
Little Steven Van Zandt, a member of the E Street Band, tweeted on Saturday that there was “No need to be anxious or afraid. Nothing serious. Just a temporary situation. We will all be back in full force very soon.”
Van Zandt stressed the fact that the shows will go on as scheduled. “Postponed,” Van Zandt tweeted. “We don’t cancel.”

In front of 20,000 spectators, Springsteen, 73, launched the tour on February 1 in Tampa, Florida. The 28-song arena performance featured standards including “Born to Run,” “Glory Days,” “Rosalita,” “Promised Land,” and “Backstreets.”
COVID has caused several band members to skip performances on the current tour, including Van Zandt, Nils Lofgren, Jake Clemons, and Soozie Tyrell. There haven’t been any long-term problems due to COVID going through the band thus far.

The setbacks occurred after Springsteen’s most recent record, “Only the Strong Survive,” was released in November. In a career that has lasted all or part of six decades, the renowned artist has sold over 140 million albums while also earning 20 Grammys, an Oscar, and a Tony award.
The following performances are set for Thursday, March 16, at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center and Saturday, March 18, at State College, Pennsylvania’s Bryce Jordan Center.
Among the upcoming local performances are those at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan on April 1; the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on April 3; the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on April 14; and two at the brand-new USB Arena in Belmont Park, New York, on April 9 and 11.
