Neil Young & Crazy Horse did not perform in Tel Aviv, Israel this coming Thursday (July 17) due to the conflict in the region.
A statement Young’s management announced, “Due to the current security situation in Tel Aviv Israel, Neil Young & Crazy Horse have been forced to cancel their concert appearance originally scheduled for July 17th in Hayarkon Park”.
Neil Young said he would donate to music organisations in the region to make up for the last minute cancellation. “I will be making donations to both the Louise Tillie Alpert Youth Music Centre of Israel, and Heartbeat, two organisations that teach music to Palestinian and Israeli youth simultaneously by enabling them to play music together,” he said
A spokesperson for Neil Young added, “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.”
Neil Young and Crazy Horse started the 2014 European tour in Iceland last weekend. Original member Billy Talbot suffered a stroke last month and has been replaced by Young’s longtime bass player Rick Rosas.
Neil Young and Crazy Horse played Liverpool on Sunday night.
