The Backstreet Boys, Paul Anka Cancel Israeli Concerts Due to Growing Political Unrest
Due to the security situation, we regret to announce that the BSB shows planned for July 29-30-31 at Raanana Amphitheater have been postponed. To assure the safety of the audience in the events, we will schedule new dates during spring 2015.
In addition, the band posted a personal message to fans that reads:
"Our dear BSB fans,
We are very sorry to inform you that the BSB concerts planned for July 29-30-31 at the Raanana Amphitheater have been postponed. 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."
The current concert tickets will be honored for the new dates to be announced shortly, however those who wish to receive a refund will be able to do so at the "Kupat Tel Aviv" offices.
