Rock legend Bruce Springsteen has cancelled two upcoming concerts after being “taken ill”.
A statement on his Instagram account said two concerts with the E Street Band in Philadelphia last night and tomorrow have been “postponed”. The nature of his illness was not disclosed.
The 73-year-old was due to play with his American rock band at the Citizens Bank Park stadium.
“We are working on rescheduling the dates, so please hold on to your tickets as they will be valid for the rescheduled shows,” it added.
The Born In The USA musician has been on an international tour with the E Street Band – performing across the US and Europe, including London.
The shows marked Springsteen and the E Street Band’s first tour since February 2017, and their first in North America since September 2016.

Stars like eight-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer, Peter Gabriel, Billy Joel and Jon Bon Jovi watched the three-hour set from the veteran US rocker.
His remaining tour dates include a range of concerts in cities like Washington DC, Vancouver, Toronto and San Diego.
Springsteen’s tour with the E Street Band is due to wrap up on 12 December with the final concert in San Francisco.
