"Don’t Let It Bring You Down" Neil! Rockets replace Rocker Neil Young as violence escalates in Tel Aviv
The much-anticipated concert featuring legendary rocker Neil Young, who was due to perform in Tel Aviv this coming Thursday, has been canceled due to the latest outbreak of hostilities between Israel and Hamas, organizers announced on Sunday.
“It is with great sorrow that we are forced to announce the cancellation of the concert that was to be staged by Neil Young and Crazy Horse this coming Thursday at Hayarkon Park,” the public relations firm representing the organizers announced on Sunday.
“The cancelation is due to the barrage of rockets that have been fired in recent days and the concern for the safety of an audience for such an event,” the statement read.
Those who purchased tickets will receive instructions later this week regarding refunds and reimbursements.
The Canadian singer-songwriter and performer first gained prominence as a member of the band Buffalo Springfield before eventually embarking on a successful solo career. Young is an inductee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He is known for such hit songs as “Keep on Rocking in the Free World,” “Cinnamon Girl,” “Harvest Moon,” “Tell Me Why,” and “Don’t Let It Bring You Down.”
