A new date for the postponed concert, which was originally scheduled to take place on August 20 in Tel Aviv, will be announced later.
Lana Del Rey has postponed what will be her first concert in Israel as the conflict between the country and Palestine continues. The show was supposed to take place on August 20 at the Trade Fairs and Convention Center in Tel Aviv. According to Jerusalem Post, fans are asked to keep their ticket for a new date which has yet to be announced.
The postponement has already been confirmed by her opening act, Max Jury. He wrote on Twitter, "Unfortunately the show with @LanaDelRey in Tel Aviv on August 20th has been postponed. Will let y'all know the rescheduled date ASAP."
Concert promoter Rani Rahav also said in a statement, "Lana apologizes to the fans who bought tickets for the show. Details on a new date will be announced in the coming days."
Del Rey is not the first musician to have canceled or delayed a concert in Israel since the conflict began last month. Cee-Lo Green, Megadeth, Neil Young and Backstreet Boys have all announced the cancellation of their shows in the territory.
