avatar by Dave Bender



“God Only Knows” what diehard fans here are thinking about a statement by local promoters on Tuesday announcing that the Beach Boys have cancelled a gig set for Nov, 29 in Tel Aviv.

Israel Radio chalked up the cancellation to poor ticket sales, based on disappointment that only one of the original band members would be in the lineup at Nokia Arena.

Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, Randell Kirsch, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill, Scott Totten and Jeffrey Foskett, were scheduled to appear, according to local promoter, Gad Oron.

The venues on the band’s tour page still showed Tel Aviv as a destination, as of Tuesday evening.
