Neil Young: "What does the "M" mean in MTV: music or money?"

Neil Young & Crazy Horse Tour Cancelled Due to Health Reasons

Neil Young and Crazy Horse have canceled the dates of their upcoming tour which was supposed to start on July 8th in Toronto, Canada, as “a couple of us” suffer from a chronic illness, the same one that led the band to cancel some concerts last May . The 78-year-old Young did not specify whether he is one of the ill members.

In a press release published on the website of Neil Young we read: “The Love Earth Tour has been a great experience for us so far.

GREAT AUDIENCE AND MUSIC. WE HAD FUN! When a couple of us got sick after Pine Knob in Detroit, we had to stop. We haven’t fully recovered yet, so unfortunately our amazing tour will have a big unplanned break. We will try to play some of the dates and will resume when we are ready to play again! We know many of you have travel planned and we apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for your understanding and patience. Health comes first. We want to stay and do more shows and more albums for you…. and for us.”

Before the tour began last April, Neil Young he explained that thinking about his health he had made the decision to play only outdoors. “We must be careful. I guess if you look at a group of 15,000 or 20,000 people, randomly… then you look at 15,000 or 20,000 people who all went to a show, and how many of them got Covid, I think the people who went to a show indoors they are much more likely to get sick. Willie Nelson told me that he only plays outdoors now. I thought it was a good idea, so I’m going to do this.”

Today Neil Young and Crazy Horse issued “Early Daze”an archive album of mostly unreleased recordings dating back to 1969, the early days of Crazy Horse who sided with the lineup composed of the guitarist Danny Whittenby the drummer Ralph Molinaby the bassist Billy Talbot and from the keyboard player Jack Nitzsche.
