Roger Waters lobbies fellow rocker Alan Parsons to cancel Tel Aviv gig – without success

Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters unsuccessfully lobbied fellow British rocker Alan Parsons to cancel his planned Tel Aviv concert in the name of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement.

Waters, who has been the most vocal artist in recent years advocating for a cultural boycott of Israel as a means of protesting its policies over the Green Line, posted a note he sent to Parsons on his Facebook account.

“While I know you don’t want to disappoint your fans by canceling this gig, you would be sending a powerful message to them and the world by doing so,” Water wrote to Parsons.
