Neil Young & Crazy Horse cancel more tour dates

Neil Young & Crazy Horse have cancelled their upcoming four-date North American tour.

The news comes after the band already cancelled seven European tour dates earlier this month, including a date at London's 02 Arena.

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

The dates have been cancelled because of the ongoing injury to guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro's hand. "[His] doctor has indicated that Sampedro's hand requires additional time to heal properly," says the statement.

The cancelled dates are:

Aug. 31: Greenbelt harvest Picnic, Dundas, Ontario
Sept. 2: Capitol Theatre, Port Chester, N.Y.
Sept 4: Ottawa Folk Festival, Ottawa, Ontario
Sept. 7: Interlocken Music Festival, Arrington, Va.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse are next scheduled to perform at Farm Aid in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., on September 21.
