Backstreet Boys to cancel concert in Israel: They are 'very sorry'

By Aubrie Reichardt,

A recent tweet from the popular boy band, the Backstreet Boys, confirmed that they have cancelled their concert in Israel. This would have been the band’s first show in the country but with tension rising between Israel and Palestine, the band chose to cancel. This is a big disappointment for both the band and their fans.

While the band’s July concert in Israel has been cancelled, they are planning on postponing it. The band’s official website, says “We're already working with the producers on new dates during Spring 2015 and will notify everyone about this as soon as possible.”

Neil Young & Crazy Horse along with Paul Anka have also cancelled shows in Israel for the same reason, says TMZ. Recently, FX’s television series Tyrant has moved production from Israel because of the violence as well and is now in Turkey, says Variety.

This might come off as bad news, but in the end it’s for everyone’s safety.
