Neil Young and Crazy Horse Cancel European Tour Dates
The band has cancelled its remaining seven dates due to an "accident," Young and Crazy Horse have announced.
Neil Young and Crazy Horse have canceled their remaining European tour dates, the group announced on Young's website on Thursday.
"Due to an accident involving Crazy Horse, the remaining dates on the Neil Young and Crazy Horse tour of Europe and the British isles have been cancelled," Young and the band wrote. They had seven dates left on the tour. "We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes 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."
According a Rolling Stone source, the pull-out was caused by guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro breaking his hand.
"It's a mild fracture," the source reportedly said. "He's expected to make a complete recovery in time for the North American tour."
Those dates are currently set to begin Aug. 31 at the Greenbelt Harvest Picnic in Dundas, Ontario and run for just over a week. The group released two albums in 2012, "Americana" and "Psychedelic Pill."
