Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul cancel most of their fall tour dates

After canceling a series of shows this past week on doctor’s orders, E Street Band guitarist Little Steven Van Zandt and his backing group The Disciples of Soul have nixed most of the remaining dates on their fall North American tour because Van Zandt is battling sinusitis.
The only concerts still scheduled to take place are a November 2 performance in the Boston suburb of Medford, Massachusetts, and a November 6 show in New York City.
The latter event, which will be held at the Beacon Theatre, will be filmed and recorded for an upcoming live DVD and album. More details about the release will be announced soon.
“I thought I could shake this sinusitis, but it doesn’t seem to be going away,” says Van Zandt. “I’ve never canceled shows before. I feel terrible about this, but my doctors are telling me there’s just no way to continue right now.”
He adds, “We were really looking forward to continuing this 90-show tour around the world. We want to thank the fans for all of their support. I really hope we can make up these dates someday, somehow.”
