ROGER WATERS Reacts to UK PINK FLOYD EXPERIENCE Reversing Cancelled Israel Shows

Roger Waters

On more chapter on Roger Waters X UK Pink Floyd Experience shows in Israel. As we all know, a few days later Roger Waters demanded UK Pink Floyd Experience to call off their booked Israel shows in January 2019. The band did remove the concerts from their tour dates and deactivate its official Facebook page, but now they step down and posted a note. Take a look:

“In January 2017 the show was invited to perform in Israel, four shows in Tel Aviv, Haifa and Be’er Sheva. The shows got a wonderful reception from friendly and enthusiastic audiences.”

“Earlier this year the show was invited back for a similar short tour, which we accepted. Our decision to accept the invitations to play in Israel were completely non-political and neither endorses nor criticizes anyone’s political views in this situation.”

“We are obliged to fulfill our contractual obligation to perform in Israel in January 2019. However, we have changed our set and will perform a one-off special concert together with Israeli Pink Floyd Tribute Band Echoes.”

“We deeply regret the upset caused by all of this, it was far from our intention to stir up all this anger and hatred, when the opposite was what was intended.”

“In hindsight, it was very naive to think our motives would not be misunderstood and misrepresented.”

“Profits from this trip will go to the charity UNICEF.”
