Neil Young & Crazy Horse Cancel Upcoming Tour Dates

Old man look at my life. I can only see in sepia tones.
Poncho Sampedro needs some additional time to let his hand injury heal properly, according to an announcement from Neil Young & Crazy Horse released this week.

These old farts have been touring all the way since last year when Psychedelic Pill was released. And when I say "old farts" I mean it. Particularly since Poncho is the youngest member and that fucker's almost 65!

After the announcement, there's video footage of a song from the tour recorded prior to Poncho's owie.


"Neil Young & Crazy Horse regretfully announce that in addition to canceling the remaining dates on their European tour, they must also cancel their upcoming U.S. tour dates due to a hand injury sustained by guitarist Poncho Sampredo, whose doctor has indicated that Sampredo's hand requires additional time to heal properly.

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

The tour dates that have been canceled are as follows:

8/31 Dundas, ON Greenbelt Harvest Picnic 
9/02 Port Chester, NY Capitol Theatre 
9/04 Ottawa, ON Ottawa Folk Festival 
9/07 Arrington, VA Interlocken Music Festival
