American singer Bruno Mars recently revealed on Twitter that Israel is among the countries in which he would like to perform.

Asked by a Twitter fan “what’s one place you haven’t performed at but want to??” Mars listed Israel, along with Africa, Russia and Cuba.

A number of artists scheduled to perform in Israel over the summer have recently cancelled their shows due to the Jewish state’s current conflict with terror group Hamas in Gaza. Lana Del Rey, Cee-Lo Green, Neil Young and band Crazy Horse, the Backstreet Boys, Brian Jonestown Massacre and even Cirque Du Soleil have all postponed or pulled out of their performances.

Promoters estimate that the cancellations have cost the local industry upwards of $20 million, according to Forbes magazine.
