Summertime sadness: Lana Del Rey cancels Israel show
The show, which was due to take place at the Tel Aviv Exhibition Grounds on August 20, has been postponed with no new dates
American singer Lana Del Rey cancelled her first-ever concert in Israel as tensions in the Gaza strip continue, the British daily newspaper the Independent reported Sunday.
“The artist and his crew really wanted to come, but unfortunately we were the ones who had to postpone it because this is not the right time to advertise and push a concert and also because Israel Defense Forces’ regional Home Front Command allows gathering of up to a thousand people only,” the show’s producers, 2b Vibes, said in a statement.
The show, which was due to take place at the Tel Aviv Exhibition Grounds on August 20, has been postponed with no new dates.
Del Rey’s promoter Arthur Fogel said that his company Live Nation would be “watching the situation.”
The 'Summertime Sadness' singer became the latest high profile artist to take such an action after Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Brian Jonestown Massacre, America and Backstreet Boys have all cancelled their concerts in Israel in recent weeks.
