UPDATE (June 4, 2024): American singer Bruce Springsteen will perform in Prague-Letňany on June 15 next year. Tickets from the canceled May 28 concert remain valid, and refunds are available until Sept. 3, 2024. For more information, see a statement from concert promoter Live Nation.

UPDATE: According to promoters Live Nation, Bruce Springsteen has canceled his Tuesday, May 28 performance at Prague's Letňany due to vocal issues. Following a postponed show in Marseille, doctors determined the singer should not perform for the next ten days. New dates for postponed shows will be announced. Refunds can obtained at the original point of purchase.

According to Live Nation's social media: "Bruce is recuperating comfortably, and he and the E Street Band look forward to resuming their hugely successful European stadium tour on June 12 in Madrid at the magnificent Civitas Metropolitan."

Iconic singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen is set to electrify Prague once again on Tuesday, May 28, marking his first performance in the Czech capital in twelve years. A day earlier, E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt will get local fans in the mood with a special appearance at Prague's Hard Rock Café.

Springsteen was forced to cancel a concert in Marseilles on Saturday at the last minute, citing "vocal issues and under doctor’s direction." The show will be rescheduled to a later date. The Prague concert is still on for Tuesday, with local fans hoping the singer has enough time to recover.

The highly anticipated concert, which will be held at Letňany Airport, promises to be the largest of his career in the Czech Republic after two previous appearances in 1997 and 2012 drew massive crowds. It's also the only stop in Central Europe on Springsteen's current European tour.

The Prague concert has been eagerly awaited since it was announced last year. With a career spanning over four decades, Springsteen has solidified his place as one of the most influential musicians of all time.

Organizer Live Nation expects an estimated 60,000 people to attend the Springsteen concert, which would match Rammstein's sold-out performance at the same venue two weeks back. The two events will rank among the biggest concerts in Prague this year.

The day before the main event, on May 27, fans will have the chance to experience a special warm-up performance by Springsteen's guitarist, Steven Van Zandt, at Prague's Hard Rock Café.

Known for his role in Springsteen's E Street Band since 1975, Van Zandt will host the Underground Garage Dance Party with Little Steven, a unique opportunity for fans to enjoy his favorite tunes and engage in intimate discussions about music. TV fans will also know Van Zandt from his role as Silvio Dante on HBO's The Sopranos.

Van Zandt's concert at Hard Rock Café on Monday is free to attend, though venue capacity may be limited. The evening will also feature a tasting event of teas and coffees from Van Zandt's own brand, Little Steven's Underground Apothecary, adding a unique twist to the hard rock experience.

Tickets to Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band at Letňany Airport on Tuesday are still available through Ticketmaster, starting at CZK 1690. The event promises to be one of the highlights on Prague's music scene this summer.
