Eric Burdon Cancels Israel Show After Threats

by Roger Wink, VVN Music on July 26, 2013

in News

Eric Burdon will not be appearing with the Israeli band Tislam at a show in northern Israel after receiving threatening e-mails.

Burdon’s representative issued a statement saying “We are under increasing pressure, including many threatening emails that we are receiving on a daily basis. I wouldn’t want to put Eric in any danger.”

According to sources, the threats came from anti-Israeli activists opposed to the country’s treatment of Palestine. Those pressures had been escalating as, according to the Times of Israel, Burdon had met with members of the band a short time ago and assured them that he would be at the show.

Tislam issued their own statement, saying “To appear with Eric Burdon, one of the founding fathers of rock & roll, was an almost dream come true. We’re sorry that despite his personal assurance to us, that he bowed to pressure and cancelled his concert.”
