There had been speculation that his Mom's illness had given him second thoughts about heading out on the road even before the pandemic rolled in: Debuting "The Wish" 30 years ago, Springsteen bemoaned the dearth of "mother songs" in rock 'n' roll; over the years he's talked about 2Pac's "Dear Mama" as one of his favorites.
He played it today for his mother and for yours, with a moving introduction: One of the hardest things about recent times is the distance you have to place between you and your loved ones My mom has had Alzheimer's for 10 years, and she lives in the present: this moment, and this moment only, is hers. So touching her and hugging her and kissing her are very, very important for her life experience right now.
One of the things we've had to suffer with is that we can't do that right now. For her safety and for her health. So I wanna send this one out to my mom, and to your mom too.
