Neil Young Pulls Forum Show

Neil Young has pulled a performance tonight at The Forum in Los Angeles as a show of respect for employees of the venue engaged in a union dispute with its owners.

Young, who along with wife Pegi is an honorary lifetime member of the International Association of Theatrical Stage Employees, expressed his sympathy for striking workers and regrets to disappointed fans.

“I am extremely disappointed to have to choose between satisfying my fans or backing my brothers and sisters of the IATSE,” the singer said in a statement.

“I will miss playing in Los Angeles and apologize to my fans for the inconvenience this has caused.”

A publicist for Young said the show will be moved to sometime next year.
