Singer Tom Jones to Snub Boycott Movement and Perform in Israel

Jones, now 73 years old, will appear the Nokia Stadium in Tel Aviv.

Earlier this week, Eric Burdon, former lead singer of the Animals, changed his mind about honoring the boycott and said he is not canceling his show, despite a flood of emails, some of them threatening, from boycott activists.
