The former judge on 'The Voice' decides to cancel his concert which was supposed to take place at Independence Park in Jerusalem on August 19.


Cee-Lo Green has decided to cancel his show in Israel amid the heated tension in the area. As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the former judge on "The Voice" was supposed to perform at Jerusalem's Independence Park on August 19, but the promoter said the scheduled show would not take place. The gig, hopefully, will be rescheduled for late October/early November.

"The artist and his crew really wanted to come, but unfortunately we were the ones who had to postpone it because 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," the promoter Carmi D. Wurtman is quoted as saying.

Green is among other singers who decided to cancel their appearances due to the ongoing conflicts. In July, Backstreet Boys announced similar decision, saying that their 3-night gig which was scheduled starting from July 29 was axed. "We're already working with the producers on new dates during spring 2015 and will notify everyone about this as soon as possible," the members said.

Besides BSB, Neil Young and Crazy Horse shared similar news in the same month. Metal band Megadeth, meanwhile, will still carry out their plan to perform at Tel Aviv's convention center on Wednesday, August 6.
