Young postpones Edmonton benefit concert

Neil Young has postponed his July 3 concert at Rexall Place, without explanation, according to the Edmonton Journal.

The 69-year-old singer issued a statement on Monday noting, “I am sad to say that I must postpone the July 3 Honour the Treaties concert at Edmonton’s Rexall Place in support of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nations legal defence. The Honour The Treaties Tour will be rescheduled and new dates will be announced in the very near future.”

Honour the Treaties is, according to their site, “an organization dedicated to amplifying the voices of Indigenous communities through art and advocacy. We do that by funding collaborations between Native artists and Native advocacy groups so that their messages can reach a wider audience.”

\"(I) drove around the tarsands in my electric car viewing and experiencing
this unbelievable smell and toxicity in my throat — my eyes were
burning,\" he recalled. \"That started 25 miles away from the tarsands.
When I was in Fort Mac, it got more intense. My son, who has cerebral
palsy, has lung damage, (so) he was wearing a mask to keep the toxic
things in the air out of his lungs and make it easy for him to have
lungs after he left.\"
