KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Rock star Bruce Springsteen cancelled a performance in Kansas City after police say a road crew member was found dead in a hotel.
Sprint Center arena said Monday night’s show was cancelled because of a death in Springsteen’s “immediate family.”
Kansas City police spokesman Capt. Rich Lockhart said officers were investigating the nonsuspicious death of a 34-year-old member of Springsteen’s road crew Monday afternoon at Kansas City’s Intercontinental Hotel.
Lockhart said he didn’t know if that death was the one that prompted cancellation of the show less than two hours before Springsteen and the E Street Band were to take the stage. The crew member’s name was not released.
A call to Springsteen’s publicist was not immediately returned.
The Sprint Center said tickets would be refunded.
