Megadeth, Cee Lo Green Cancel Israel Gigs

Megadeth and Cee Lo Green are the latest artists to cancel appearances in Israel and the country’s conflict with Hamas and Palestine continues.

Dave Mustaine had been quoted in Israeli media as saying that the show would go on but, on Monday, it was announced that the show was cancelled.

Due to an inability to confirm the guaranteed passage of the band and their gear into Tel Aviv in time for the show, the upcoming Megadeth concert, scheduled for Wednesday, August 6, 2014, has been cancelled. The band was looking forward to this concert and is disappointed they will not be able to put on the show for their fans, but expects to return to Tel Aviv on their next international tour.

Ticket holders should contact their point of purchase to handle refunds. Check back tomorrow for further specific instruction on refunds.

Israeli promoter Carmi D. Wurtman, in explaining the cancellation of the Cee Lo Green show, said “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.”

Previously, artists such as Paul Anka, the Backstreet Boys and Neil Young & Crazy Horse have been forced to cancel their planned shows in Israel due to the conflict.
