Is This Anything? Nigel and Hammer discuss Bruce Springsteen and late-night hosts returning

Bruce Springsteen Postpones Rest of 2023 Shows

Nigel and Hammer from the “Nigel and Hammer Show” on 93.1 WIBC shared their thoughts on some of the trending topics right now.

First up, Bruce Springsteen is canceling his shows.

The Boss is following doctor’s orders and taking more time off from touring.

The rocker released a statement to X, formerly Twitter, on Wednesday.

The statement said he’s continuing to “recover steadily from peptic ulcer disease over the past few weeks and will continue treatment through the rest of the year on doctor’s advice.”

“With this in mind, and out of an abundance of caution, all remaining 2023 tour dates for Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band will be postponed until 2024,” the statement continued.

Springsteen had previously canceled several shows with the E Street Band last month and earlier this month.

Wednesday’s statement said that those shows, along with the concerts that were to be held during the rest of this year, will have rescheduled dates to be announced next week, “all taking place at their originally scheduled venues.”

“When the new 2024 dates are announced, those unable to attend on the new date who purchased their tickets through official ticketing companies have 30 days to request a refund.

All tickets for postponed performances will remain valid for the newly announced dates,” the statement read.

Hammer discussed the return of late-night shows.

With the end of the writer’s strike the hosts will return to their regular programming.

Host of “Last Week Tonight”, John Oliver, is canceling his planned trip to IU Bloomington.

He will begin production on the late-night show again.

Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, and John Oliver all announced their respective shows are coming back now that the writer’s strike is over.

Oliver’s show will be returning Sunday night while the rest will have new episodes beginning Monday.

Late-night shows were the first ones that went dark when the writers guild strike began on May second.
