Neil Young & Crazy Horse Cancel European Tour Due to Accident

Some music fans in the UK who have waited since 2001 to see Neil Young & Crazy Horse return to their area will have to wait a bit longer. Due to a mishap in which guitarist Frank “Pancho” Sampedro broke his hand, the band have cancelled their remaining tour dates in Europe, including dates in Liverpool and London.

The cancellation affects seven dates in total, including scheduled concerts in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Norway, Belgium and the UK. The band performed Wednedsday night in Oslo, Norway.

A statement on the band’s website reads, “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.”

As Rolling Stone reports, the band is currently planning to resume tour dates in North America beginning August 31, as Sampedro is expected to recover enough to resume playing by that time.

About the Author


Tim Ferrar's interest in pop and rock started as a child, listening to Top-40 radio for hours on end while playing air guitar in his bedroom. Eventually air guitar led to electric guitar, and Tim began playing in bands and writing his own songs. With an admitted weakness for "a great hook or a great guitar riff," Tim's musical tastes are broad and varied, ranging from Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga on the pop side to Bon Jovi and Foo Fighters on the rock side- making him the ideal guy to cover our Rock and Pop categories. By day, Tim is a mild-mannered accountant in Chicago. By night, he rocks out on electric guitar in a cover band in various clubs around town- much to the surprise of some of his clients.
