Bruce Springsteen’s New York Concert Postponed Due to Winter Storm Jonas
Winter Storm Jonas has forced the postponement of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s concert at Madison Square Garden tomorrow night (Jan. 24). As of this publication, New York City has received more than 20 inches of snow, and much of the East Coast has been shut down.
A message on his website reads, “Madison Square Garden and Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band must postpone the performance set for tomorrow (January 24) due to a Tri-state travel ban and safety concerns from severe weather. There is not an immediate date available for reschedule, but more information will be coming shortly.”
Tomorrow was supposed to be the first of two nights at Madison Square Garden for Springsteen on his The River 2016 Tour, which began last week in Pittsburgh. The second is scheduled for Wednesday with a stop in Washington, D.C., which was similarly paralyzed by snow, on Friday. There has been no word on the status of those shows. Springsteen is playing his 1980 double-LP The River in its entirety on this tour, and is adding another 90 minutes of music to the concert.

Earlier today, Steven Tyler was found on the streets of New York with his daughter, Mia, by CNN. While on camera, he advised those affected by the storm to “stay home. Two words: hot chocolate.” CNN is reporting that at least 14 people have died as a result of the weather.
