STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Bruce Springsteen is scheduled to be back on stage tonight in Philadelphia after postponing his last three shows due to an undisclosed illness.

He will be performing next at the Bryce Jordan Center in State College on Saturday, March 18 at 7:30 p.m. Many fans have been anxious whether or not he will still perform or not on Saturday. The last canceled show was on Tuesday in Albany, New York. Fan of Springsteen, Bethann Jakovoski says she’s been following updates on the concert’s status.
“I keep checking my phone, I keep checking the status,” Jakovoski said. “I have an alert on my phone to see if there is any information.”

The show in State College should be good to go since he is performing in Philadelphia tonight. Tickets are sold out for this weekend, and State College businesses are preparing for the increase in people in town. Director of Sales at the Country Inn at State College, Samantha Fink says parking will be their biggest problem.

“We’ll have particular information policies mainly when it comes to parking policies for this weekend, so we understand that parking is going to be an issue,” Fink said.  With a lot of guests, this is their first concert, and they aren’t too familiar with this area.”

Bruce Springsteen is on tour until December 2023. Tickets can be purchased on Ticketmaster.
