JNS.org Legendary 1960s band The Animals’ musician Eric Burdon will perform in Israel after initially canceling the performance due to threatening anti-Israel emails, his manager said. The former lead singer of the band will perform alongside the Israeli band T-Slam.

Though Burdon originally told T-Slam musicians that “everyone needs music and there’s no connection to current politics” and that “everyone has the right to be entertained,” Burdon’s manager later told the Israeli band that the show was off because he “wouldn’t want to put Eric in any danger” amid “increasing pressure.” to cancel.

The show, however, is now back on and was re-posted on Burdon’s website, without an explanation, the Times of Israel reported.

    somehow I can understand his reaction, but I still think that if all these artists who get cold feet for comming to Israelshould on the contrary come massively. I do not believe that there BDS fanatics would actually perpetrate some real ttacks. after all there is law and justice.
    and in spite of all these durty activities of BDS and co. ISRAEL LIVES AND WILL LIVE
