Neil Young cancels New Zealand shows
However, Young is still named on the bill for Australian festival Bluesfest in April, and organisers have declined to comment. At the time of publishing, his New Zealand and Australian concerts are still listed Frontier Touring’s official website. “We regret to advise that Neil Young will unfortunately no longer be undertaking a 2017 AU/NZ headline tour as previously teased on socials,” Frontier Touring’s official Twitter account announced. The folk-music star was set to perform at Auckland’s Vector Arena and Wellington’s TSB Bank Arena in March, 2017, but the promoter announced on Tuesday that these shows aren’t going ahead. Neil Young has cancelled plans to perform in New Zealand next year, according to Frontier Touring.
