Neil 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.”
