#BDS: Remembering Gil Scott Heron
25 APRIL 2010
Gil Scott-Heron, whose political poetry influenced a generation of rap artists, last night sensationally announed the cancellation of his planned gig in Tel Aviv.
Speaking on-stage at London's Royal Festival Hall, Scott-Heron told the audience he “hated war” and, in a lengthy monolougue, told the packed audience his Israel tour date would not be going ahead.
His concert had earlier been disrupted by fans dismayed at the booking, repeatedly heckling the performer and asking him to cancel.
Security was called and audience members threatened with removal.
A Facebook page was set up to urge the legendary
against going ahead with his Israel appearance."
