Band Injury Forces Neil Young To Cancel Dates
Neil Young & Crazy Horse were forced to cancel the final seven shows of their European tour due to guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro breaking his hand. Rolling Stone quoted a source close to Young saying, "It's a mild fracture. He's expected to make a complete recovery in time for the North American tour." Young and the band kick of their next string of dates on August 31st in Dundas, Ontario.
 
On Thursday (August 8th) a statement from Young and the band was posted on NeilYoung.com reading:
 
"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. 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. Neil Young and Crazy Horse"
