Cancel Culture Comes to Israel
Sam Smith has just announced that he is cancelling his performance at the end of the month (31st May) as part of the 2-day Summer In The City Festival.
The second night of the festival will continue as planned with Robbie Williams headlining.
Sam Smith has cancelled due to unforeseen logistical and technical problems. He has been under strong BDS pressure to cancel his performance. It is unclear if this is related.
There has been a wave of cancellations recently in music concerts from international performers coming to Israel.
Justin Bieber and Celine Dion have both cancelled due to physical and mental health problems.
I wanted to go to Celine Dion’s concert in 2020 but this was cancelled due to the corona epidemic, which is a shame.
Justin Bieber also cancelled due to physical and mental health problems but all his other remaining shows in other countries were cancelled. This has nothing to do with BDS.
On the bright side, Robbie Williams and Backstreet Boys have confirmed they will be coming.
It is not all bad!
