Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band have postponed two concerts with no official explanation other than “illness.”

After postponing his March 9 concert with the E Street Band at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, Bruce Springsteen also has postponed his March 12 show at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. Both times, the reason given to fans was “illness,” with no elaboration as to what the illness is, and which band member is affected.

E Streeter Steven Van Zandt has added a bit of information to that, though. Tweeting today on, he wrote: “No need to be anxious or afraid. Nothing serious. Just a temporary situation. We will all be back in full force very soon.”

Imminent shows include the MVP Arena in Albany, N.Y., March 14; the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, March 16, and the Bryce Jordan Center in State College, Pa., March 18.

Upcoming New Jersey and New York shows include Madison Square Garden in Manhattan, April 1; the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, April 3; the UBS Arena at Belmont Park in Elmont, N.Y., April 9 and 11; the Prudential Center in Newark, April 14, and MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, Aug. 30 and Sept. 1 and 3.

The band‘s current tour is its first in nearly six years.
