Bruce Springsteen has postponed his concert in New York tonight as the city battles against Hurricane Sandy.

The Boss was due to play live in Rochester, New York this evening (October 30) but has put the gig back one day to Wednesday, Oct 31. Posting on his official website about the move, Springsteen wrote: "Due to the current weather complications in the tri-state area, the Tuesday, October 30 show at Rochester, NY’s Blue Cross Arena is being postponed to Wednesday, October 31. Stay safe, and see you on Wednesday!"

Other Tuesday night shows affected by the Hurricane include Deftones, who have postponed shows in both New York and Baltimore, as well as Swans who cancelled their date at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on Monday night (Oct 29).

A number of US chat shows, including musical guests, were cancelled on Monday with Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Daily Show and Colbert Report all affected. The Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon will both air but were filmed without a studio audience.

As previously reported, The xx postponed three shows in New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore in anticipation of the storm. The band's record label Young Turks has confirmed that all three shows will be rescheduled with original tickets still valid. Meanwhile, after Grimes' show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg was pulled, she tweeted: "I am fully appreciating the seriousness of this situation, but its kind of exciting to be stuck in a hurricane."

Other shows affected by Hurricane Sandy and New York's preparations included Cat Power's gig at Electric Factory, a Rita Ora show in Philadelphia and the Freedom to Love Now! charity fundraiser show which was set to see The National and Rufus Wainwright perform. Cat Power's show has already been rescheduled for January 30, 2013.
