As announced officially this morning, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band's two recently postponed Philadelphia concerts have been rescheduled for August 2024. All tickets from the postponed concerts will be valid for the new dates. Tickets for the Wednesday, August 16, 2023 show will be valid for the Wednesday, August 21, 2024 show and tickets for the Friday, August 18, 2023 show will be valid for the Friday, August 23, 2024 show.

The official confirmation of these rescheduled dates also gives us our first solid indication of how next year's touring cycle may be shaping up, since it seems highly unlikely that Springsteen and his touring organization have arranged these Philly make-up dates to be one-off outliers in their touring schedule. A much more likely scenario is that the August 2024 shows in Philly will be part of a larger set of yet-to-be-announced August 2024 concerts here in the U.S. Furthermore, the fact that the rescheduled Philly shows will take place so late in the summer of 2024 could be seen as an indicator that more shows in Europe and/or other non-U.S. locations will take place earlier in Summer 2024, in a cycle similar to this summer's touring schedule.
Such a cycle also would be in accordance with the general plan that Bruce himself related to E Street Radio's Jim Rotolo when the 2023 tour was announced officially back in May 2022: "We've got an old-school tour planned, where we'll be out there for quite a while to give everybody a chance to see us if they'd like to. We're going to rehearse in January, start in the States in arenas at the beginning of February, run that through April. Then head over to Europe through the beginning of August, and come back to the States play a few stadium shows outside. We're eventually going to get to Australia and New Zealand, and back around again. So it's an old-school E Street Band lengthy tour that we're going to be involved in, and everybody's very excited about it."
