Henry Rollins denies he’s boycotting Israel

Punk spoken word performance artist Henry Rollins has backed out of a show next month in Tel Aviv, but denied Monday that it had anything to do with a cultural boycott of Israel.

The British musical paper NME had published a report saying that Rollins had pulled out of the show, scheduled for February 5 at the Havana Club, due to pressure from pro-Palestinian activists.

Rollins’ official website cited a "promoter conflict" with being behind the cancellation and added that the outspoken activist intended to "reschedule as soon as possible."
