Neil Young Cancels European Tour Dates

With a man down due to injury, Neil Young and Crazy Horse have been forced to cancel a series of summer tour dates.

NME reports that the band, on the road supporting last year’s ‘Americana‘ and ‘Psychedelic Pill‘ albums, has pulled out of its headlining slot at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium on August 15-17, shows in Liverpool and London on Aug. 18 and 19 and subsequent dates in Norway, Denmark and Germany. The culprit? Guitarist Frank ‘Poncho’ Sampedro’s broken hand.

“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 canceled,” explains a statement released by the band. “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.”

The current tour is Young’s first journey to the U.K. with Crazy Horse since 2001 — and given Sampedro’s recently voiced concerns that this might be the band’s final run with Young, news of the canceled dates has to be doubly frustrating for European fans.
