Backstreet Boys Cancel Concert in Israel


Backstreet Boys
Nick Carter and his bandmates apologize for the cancellation and promise to work on new dates for Spring 2015.


A. J. McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, and Brian Littrell scrap their scheduled Backstreet Boys concert in Israel as the country's conflict with Palestine escalates. They were supposed to perform in Israel for three consecutive nights starting July 29.

"We are very sorry to inform you that the BSB concerts planned for July 29-30-31 at the Ra'anana Amphitheater have been postponed," the boyband says in a statement. "This is a major disappointment for the band and fans as this was to be our first visit to Israel and we looked forward to meeting our fans."

"We're already working with the producers on new dates during spring 2015 and will notify everyone about this as soon as possible. Sending lots of love to everyone."

BSB is not the only one canceling their gig in Israel. Earlier this month, Neil Young and Crazy Horse pulled the plug on their upcoming show in Tel Aviv due to safety concerns following the ongoing tensions between the country and militants from the neighboring region of Palestine.
