Neil Young recently played a number of concerts in the UK
Singer-songwriter Neil Young has cancelled a Los Angeles concert rather than cross a picket line.
The show was due to take place at LA indoor arena The Forum on Thursday.
The venue's striking workers are engaged in a contract dispute with Faithful Central Bible Church - the owners of The Forum arena.
Young, an honourary lifetime member of the workers' union, International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE), said he was "disappointed".
The concert will be rescheduled for sometime in 2009, and ticket holders will be eligible for refunds.
"I am extremely disappointed to have to choose between satisfying my fans or backing my brothers and sisters of the IATSE," said Young.
The Canadian performer is in the middle of a North American tour and will release an archival live album, Sugar Mountain: Live at Canterbury House 1968, in November.
