Rocker Neil Young Cancels Israeli Performance Due to “Security Concerns”

Neil Young and Crazy Horse have cancelled their July 17th performance in Tel Aviv at Hayarkon Park.

A press release from Young’s camp said: “It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that we must cancel our one and only Israeli concert due to tensions which have rendered the event unsafe at this time. We’ll miss the opportunity to play for our fans and look forward to playing in Israel and Palestine in peace.”

Young continued: “I will be making donations to both the Louise Tillie Alpert Youth Music Centre of Israel, and Heartbeat, two organizations that teach music to Palestinian and Israeli youth simultaneously by enabling them to play music together.”

Meantime, we’re all waiting for Neil’s Pono music player, due this fall after a major Kickstarter campaign.
