The Pixies are coming to Israel.

Legendary Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters may be ramping up his anti-Semitic attempts to discourage other musicians to boycott Israel, but there is mounting evidence that the music world is saying “We don’t need no thought control.”

In addition to the Rolling Stones, Justin Timberlake, Neil Young and Backstreet Boys, iconic rock bands Soundgarden and The Pixies have announced that they will perform at Tel Aviv’s Bloomfield Stadium in July 2014.

The lineup of talent headed for Israel comes on the heels of repeated blows for the BDS movement. Earlier this year, SodaStream spokeswoman Scarlett Johansson refused to bow to pressure to abandon the company because of  a factory in Kfar Adumim, and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres gave the company an Earth Day prize for its use of reusable bottles.

  1. Waters and his group are has beens, and his hateful, stupid mouth hopefully will have no effect on the other artists. His anti-Semitic feelings are well known, and if Israel and the Palestinians actually had a peace treaty, this POS would still be ranting and raving.

  3. A man that can’t get along with his own former band mates and has produced nothing for years can only find friends with terrorists. Being this way is his only way of trying to remain relevant, but he is all washed up.

  4. I used to be a huge fan of Pink Floyd but now there music is poison to me, I hope Roger Waters and Nick Mason get a cancer and they rot, that is what should happen to a piece of garbage like them

  5. and this is the truth, while I can’t say I am a big fan of Gilmour as he has supported Roger in some Palestinian charity a few years ago, he has not jumped on the anti Israel and boycott bandwagon as of yet, when Gilmour was in Floyd he gave them the sound that made them to the main stream, and even when Roger was out of Floyd they still put out some good music, Roger Waters has put out essentially crap in his solo years, and Pre David Gilmour Floyd they were a typical “psychedelic” band that were a dime a dozen in the late 60s, when Gilmour was in the band they put out enjoyable music

  6. Roger Waters is on a personal eve of destruction if he does not change his tune soon. He is way off the mark telling music folks what they should be doing. Roger has a lot to learn about the world. Perhaps he should take his band on a tour to help the less fortunate people in the world and donate some of his money to `building a bridge to peace.“ He may find his record sales going down soon. Must think carefully before he speaks as the rest of us have done all in good time.

  7. I am just so angry this guy would have opinions and that he would share them with others! What a jerk! I hope he gets a sliver and the infection make it hard to play his slide guitar.
