Neil Young and Crazy Horse Tour Makes ‘Big Unplanned Break’

Neil Young and Crazy Horse press pause on their Love Earth trek, following illness among the touring party.

The show will stop for the foreseeable future to allow bandmates to recover from illness, explains a post on Young’s official website, the Neil Young Archives

The Love Earth Tour, their first trek together in a decade, “has been a great experience for us so far,” the message reads. “Great audiences and music. we have had a blast. Though, when a “couple of us got sick after Detroit’s Pine Knob, we had to stop,” the message continues. “We are still not fully recovered, so sadly our great tour will have a big unplanned break.”

All dates across this U.S. and Canada this July are now listed by Ticketmaster as canceled.

“We will try to play some of the dates we miss as time passes when we are ready to rock again,” the rockers’ statement continues. “We know many of you made travel plans and we apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks for your understanding and patience. Health is # 1. We want to stay and do more shows and more albums for you…. and for for us.”

The message is signed by Young, Micah Nelson, Ralph Molina and Billy Talbot.

Billboard’s Joe Lynch caught a recent show at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, the first of two dates. “Musically,” writes Lynch, “Young and Horse were as simpatico and incendiary as ever, stretching out on auditory odysseys like ‘Cortez the Killer’ and ‘Powderfinger,’ chugging through the blunt thump of ‘Cinnamon Girl’ and feeding off each other during the oil industry takedown ‘Vampire Blues.’” 

The Canadian rock icon, 78, and his longtime band gave fans a reminder of their live prowess with Fu##in’ Up, a live album which dropped in April, and captured recordings made in 1990.
