Rockets force cancellation of Neil Young concert

Follow j. on   and 

A Neil Young concert scheduled for Tel Aviv was canceled due to the continuing rocket fire on Israel.

The July 17 performance by Neil Young and Crazy Horse at Yarkon Park was canceled on July 13, according to the Shuki Weiss production company, due to “missile attacks in recent days and the fear for the audience’s safety at an event with so many participants.”

It would have been Young’s second performance in Israel; the first was in 1995.

On July 10, Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters released a letter that he wrote to Young in January urging him not to sign a contract to play the Tel Aviv concert. Young reportedly did not respond to the letter. — jta
