Neil Young and Crazy Horse cancel more tour dates

NYandCHNeil Young and Crazy Horse have cancelled their upcoming tour dates in North America. The announcement comes just days after the band cancelled seven scheduled European gigs.

“We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes to our fans or the Festivals where we were scheduled to appear,” the band says in a statement. “As you must be, we too are disappointed at this unfortunate turn of events.”

The cancellations are as a result of an injury to guitarist Frank ‘Poncho’ Sampedro’s hand. “”[His] doctor has indicated that Sampedro’s hand requires additional time to heal properly,” the statement continues.

The affected North American dates are:

Aug 31: Greenbelt harvest Picnic, Dundas, Ontario
Sept 2: Capitol Theatre, Port Chester, N.Y.
Sept 4: Ottawa Folk Festival, Ottawa, Ontario
Sept 7: Interlocken Music Festival, Arrington, Va.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse are next scheduled to perform at Farm Aid in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., on September 21.
