Bruce Springsteen Jokes About Postponed Tour on ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’


Springsteen joined Larry David on the latest episode of the beloved HBO show

Bruce Springsteen is in his acting era. The Boss joined Larry David on Sunday’s episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm. In the episode, Springsteen blames the cancelation of one of his “farewell” shows on David giving him Covid.

During the episode, Springsteen meets with David to talk about the cranky comedian’s activism in Atlanta. (This season, David is awaiting trial in Georgia for offering water to a voter outside of a polling place.) After a brief discussion about restaurant health inspection grades over breakfast, the singer and David find themselves in a back-and-forth about whose water glass is whose. Springsteen later tests positive for Covid, forcing the singer to cancel his farewell show. Naturally, Springsteen blames David (and the water glass incident) for the show’s cancelation on social media, causing his fans to attack the comedian.

The tour storyline on Enthusiasm is a play on what happened to Springsteen’s 2023 tour. First, Covid hit E Street as band members Steven Van Zandt and violinist/singer Soozie Tyrell missed Texas gigs after testing positive; saxophonist Jake Clemons and half of the E Street’s touring backup singers also missed subsequent dates.

Springsteen then later postponed numerous tour dates due to his treatment (and recovery) for peptic ulcer disease. He eventually began his rescheduled tour on March 19 and has shows planned through the summer.

The new episode with Springsteen marks the HBO series’ second-to-last episode ever. Springsteen also made a cameo in an earlier episode this season, titled “The Lawn Jockey.”
