Singer Cee Lo Green has canceled a planned performance in Israel on August 19 due to the political turmoil that is enveloping the region.
Green had a gig booked in Israel for August 19 but he will not go through with the show.
Other acts who canceled shows in Israel due to the political strife include Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Paul Anka and The Backstreet Boys.
The show's promoter told The Hollywood Reporter that "the artist and his crew really wanted to come, but unfortunately we were the ones who had to postpone it because this is not the right time to advertise and push a concert and also because Israel Defense Forces' regional Home Front Command allows gathering of up to a thousand people only."
Green hopes to reschedule the Israel gig in the fall.
