Neil Young & Crazy Horse Cancel American Dates Due To Injury

(hennemusic) Neil Young & Crazy Horse have cancelled their upcoming four-city North American tour due to an injury to guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro's hand.

"[His] doctor has indicated that Sampedro's hand requires additional time to heal properly," according to a statement sent out by Warner Bros. Records on Monday.

The group said, "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 band canceled the final seven dates of their summer European tour earlier this month due to the injury, which a source close to the Young camp recently told Rolling Stone is "a mild fracture." However, they still have some dates coming up that have not been canceled.
