Pink Floyd Tribute Band Cancels Shows in Israel at Behest of Roger Waters

JERUSALEM – A British tribute band honoring the legendary progressive rock band Pink Floyd has canceled three shows it was scheduled to perform in Israel following criticism by founding member Roger Waters, the English songwriter, singer, bassist and composer announced on Sunday.

Waters, who co-founded Pink Floyd in 1965, had slammed on Friday Pink Floyd Experience’s intention to play in the Israeli cities of Tel Aviv, Haifa and Be’er Sheba – scheduled for Jan. 4, 5 and 6, respectively – as “unconscionable malice and disrespect.”

“I have heard back from David Power, who speaks for the band. I am very happy that they have canceled their shows in Israel,” Waters said on his Facebook page on Sunday.

Waters is one of the most distinguished figures of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, which promotes this course of action against Israel as long as it occupies Palestinian territory.

On previous occasions, the BDS – with Waters at the forefront – had unsuccessfully attempted to convince Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Alicia Keys, Bon Jovi, Radiohead and Britney Spears to cancel their respective shows in Israel.
