The American rock band Papa Roach will not participate as planned in the Summer in the City festival in Yarakon Park.
The band was supposed to perform on the first day of the festival in years, on May 31.
On behalf of the festival's production, it was stated that the cancellation is "under circumstances unrelated to the festival's production. Ticket buyers who request will receive a full refund for the means of payment with which the order was made."
The announcement of the cancellation of the band's first performance in Israel was made after criticism on the net after the fans learned that the band, despite the announcements and ticket sales, would not perform in Israel.
A red light came on for the fans after, contrary to official announcements by the Israeli production, there was no announcement at all about the band's coming to Israel on the band's official website and on its social media.
An exchange with the band on Instagram was published earlier on the "the core" website.
In response to the question why the performance is not promoted or advertised on its official website, the band wrote: "We are not performing in Tel Aviv. This is also the reason we did not publish or share anything related to the performance in Tel Aviv."
All this before the production gave the notice of cancellation, and while the ticket sales website continued to mention the name of the band as one of those performing at the festival.
