USA Today is reporting that Neil Young & Crazy Horse, having canceled a tour of Europe, have just pulled the plug on four American dates, including a Sept. 2 date at Port Chester’s Capitol Theatre.
“We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes to our fans or the Festivals where we were scheduled to appear,” the band said in a statement. “As you must be, we too are disappointed at this unfortunate turn of events.”
Off the schedule are stops at Greenbelt Harvest Picnic in Ontario (Aug. 31), the Capitol (Sept. 2), Ottawa Folk Festival (Sept. 4); and Interlocken Music Festival in Virginia (Sept. 7).
The band is next scheduled to perform at Farm Aid in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., on Sept. 21.
The reason cited for the cancellations is an injury to guitarist Poncho Sampredo’s hand.
The Capitol reopened last Sept. 4 with Bob Dylan. Locals looked at Young’s date as another great icon gracing the stage where the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin held forth.
No word yet on whether the date will be rescheduled or on refunds.
