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.
