Claiming that a couple of us got sick after a show at Detroit’s Pine Knob, we had to stop, and haven’t fully recovered.

From the Neil Young Archives Website: The Love Earth Tour has been a great experience for us so far. GREAT AUDIENCES AND MUSIC. WE HAVE HAD A BLAST! When a couple of us got sick after Detroit’s Pine Knob, we had to stop. We are still not fully recovered, so sadly our great tour will have a big unplanned break. We will try to play some of the dates we miss as time passes when we are ready to rock again! 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. With love and thanks to all of you from Crazy Horse….. Neil, Micah, Ralph and Billy Love Earth

Other tours this year have been canceled due to ticket sales, as well as illness. Mark Chesnutt, legendary honky tonk icon, had heart surgery.
