Neil Young has cancelled an LA concert, scheduled for tonight (October 30) due to a workers’ union dispute with the venue.

Coinciding with an organised union picket by employees at The Forum arena clashing with the owner of the venue, Faithful Central Bible Church, over contract issues, the singer has decided to postpone the show until next year out of respect for the Intl. Assn. of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE). Young and his wife are both honorary lifetime members of the group.

In a statement, Young explained: “I am extremely disappointed to have to choose between satisfying my fans or backing my brothers and sisters of the IATSE.”

Young is currently touring North America in the build up to the November 25 release of an archival live album, Sugar Mountain: Live at Canterbury House 1968.
