Organizers have scrapped a pair of concerts set to take place in Israel in the wake of the violence conflict between Israelis and Palestinians taking place in the Gaza Strip. According to The Hollywood Reporter, scheduled shows by both Cee Lo Green and metal band Megadeth have been canceled. Megadeth was set to perform on August 6 at the convention center in Tel Avivi while Cee Lo was slated for August 19th in in Independence Park in Jerusalem.
Megadeth announced on their website that their show was canceled “Due to an inability to confirm the guaranteed passage of the band and their gear into Tel Aviv in time for the show."
A statement from the promoter for Cee Lo's gig said that the current state of Israel, combined with a mandate that limits gatherings to just 1,000 people was the underlying cause of the stymied show. - Staff Writers
