Neil Young and Crazy Horse have been forced to cancel their two remaining Canadian tour dates, as well as two shows in the U.S. due to injury.
According to an article posted Aug. 19 at Pollstar.com, the legendary Canuck singer-songwriter has axed the four dates due to a hand fracture suffered by Crazy Horse guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro earlier this month.
Cancellations include: Aug. 31 Dundas, ON - Greenbelt Harvest Picnic, Sept. 2 Port Chester, N.Y. - Capitol Theatre, Sept 4 Ottawa, ON - Ottawa Folk Festival and Sept. 7 Arrington, Va. - Interlocken Music Festival.
In a statement, the band expressed their regret, saying, “We are sorry for any inconvenience to our fans or the festivals where we were scheduled to appear. As you must be, we too are disappointed at this unfortunate turn of events.”
The "Cinnamon Girl" hitmakers previously canceled the final seven dates of their summer European tour earlier this month due to Sampedro's injury.
