A venue representative told Pollstar he wasn’t aware of any changes to the schedule, but The Black Crowes Web site carried an announcement dated September 8 stating the remainder of the Page/Crowes North American dates have been shelved as well as an upcoming U.K. and European tour.

It wasn’t clear if ticket refunds will be offered for the Garden stand. Tickets for the other canceled shows will be refunded at the point of purchase.

The culprit for the latest rash of cancellations was – once again – Page’s recurrent back problem. A late-summer leg of the Page/Crowes outing was canned shortly after Page and the Crowes performed on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” August 14.

Three of the then-canceled shows were rescheduled in advance of a fall tour leg. Those dates are now off.

According to The Black Crowes’ announcement, the guitar legend has been ordered to get complete rest for the next six weeks. After that, he will be re-examined “with surgery as a possibility.”

Page and the Crowes hope to reschedule shows in New York City and perform in Japan in December if all goes well with the ax-man’s recuperation.

“Page wants to express his great disappointment and distress over letting his fans down as well as The Black Crowes,” the statement read. “The Black Crowes send their sincere wishes to Page for a healthy recovery and hope fans will understand.”
