“I received messages from soldiers blocking exits”: Norouz cancels his performance due to the security situation. In the background of the reports of a second shooting attack in Jerusalem this morning, during which two were seriously injured, the rapper, who was supposed to take the stage at Reading 3 this evening, announced in the last few hours that he did not feel it was right to hold the concert.
“We woke up to a difficult morning that continues last night’s events and it is impossible to remain indifferent to the security situation, bereavement and loss,” said Nowroz. According to him, he has received quite a few inquiries and he cannot ignore them: “I have received a significant amount of messages from soldiers who are under curfew or from a young audience who is afraid to go out and I decided that postponing in this situation is the right thing to do. I send my condolences to the families and a speedy recovery to the injured and I wish for peace and better days.” .
Marina Maksilimian, who is currently holding the “Marina Festival” at Hangar 11 in Tel Aviv, announced that the event will take place as usual, precisely because of the difficulty. “The soul cries out the pain of the families and the victims. In our complex and beloved country, it is our life’s mission to live alongside and despite the difficulty. Tonight’s festival will take place as planned. I have no other country.”
