America, Thanks for not playing Israel.

Folk rock band "America" will not be entertaining Israeli fans on August 7 as planned.  They are best known for their 1970's hit "Horse with No Name."  All cancellations are welcome.  Cancellations allow musicians more time to learn about the plight of the people under siege in Gaza, the call for boycott, and the many reasons BDS is effective as a method to achieve justice for Palestinians living under Israeli occupation and as refugees.



Thank "America" for their cancellation on their official facebook page, and let them know about the call by Palestinian Civil Society for the boycott of Israel at www.facebook.com/Americaband

A representative at the band's management group in Los Angeles, California could not comment on the specific reason for their cancellation.  Their booking agent could not be contacted.
