Neil Young & Crazy Horse were scheduled to play Tel Aviv, Israel this Thursday, July 17, but have been forced to cancel the event amid escalating violence in the region.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Neil Young wrote:

“It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that we must cancel our one and only Israeli concert due to tensions which have rendered the event unsafe at this time. We’ll miss the opportunity to play for our fans and look forward to playing in Israel and Palestine in peace.”

Rolling Stone reports that near 30,000 people had purchased tickets to the show, which would have marked Young’s first performance in Israel since the 1990s.
