Bruce Springsteen canceled a performance in Kansas City after his cousin and road crew member died. 

The death of 36-year-old Lenny Sullivan was announced in a statement on Springsteen’s Web site.

Sullivan was found dead at Kansas City’s Intercontinental Hotel hours before Springsteen and the E Street Band were to take the stage Monday night.

Kansas City police spokesman Capt. Rich Lockhart said officers were investigating the death, although he said it was not suspicious.

A call to Springsteen’s publicist was not immediately returned.

The Sprint Center arena said tickets would be refunded.
