Bruce Springsteen cancels show in Kansas City
Bruce Springsteen cancelled his performance with the E Street Band in Kansas City after the death of Lenny Sullivan, his cousin and assistant road manager.
“Lenny Sullivan, Bruce’s cousin and the assistant road manager of the E Street Band for the last ten years, passed away today at the age of 36,” announced in a statement on Springsteen’s website. “A warm and sensitive person, he was beloved by Bruce, the Band, the crew, and the entire Thrill Hill family.”
Sullivan was found dead by the police in his hotel room at the InterContinental Hotel on Monday evening, hours before their scheduled show. The cause of death was not suspicious according to Kansas City police Capt. Rich Lockhart, but they are still investigating.
All the tickets for the show will be refunded. “Bruce and The Band deeply appreciate the understanding of our Kansas City audience and look forward to returning at the earliest opportunity,” the statement read.
