Neil Young has cancelled his upcoming headline Australian tour and removed his Bluesfest date from his website.

Michael Gudinski’s Frontier Touring was going to promote the Neil Young Australian tour in April 2017 and had earlier announced dates would be forthcoming on October 12. That date came and went without word of a tour.

Today Frontier Touring posted on Facebook, “Frontier Touring regret to advise that Neil Young will unfortunately no longer be undertaking a 2017 headline tour of Australia and New Zealand as previously ‘teased’ on our social media.”

Neil Young has already been announced as the headline act for Bluesfest 2017 and at time of publication, his Bluesfest performance has not been cancelled. (Update: The Bluesfest date has now been removed from

Neil Young’s official website is also still listing the Bluesfest date of April 14, 2017. Bluesfest also has Young listed as the main act for April 14, 2017.

Bluesfest is on April 13-17, 2017.

Other headline acts are Patti Smith and her band performing Horses on April 13 , Doobie Brothers on April 15 , Santana on April 16 and Barry Gibb on April 17.
