Shakira in Jerusalem - June 21, 2011

Shakira is not coming to Israel, as reported earlier in the month by Israel’s Channel 20.

The initial report said Shakira would be performing in Tel Aviv on July 9th.


Shakira’s entertainment company Live Nation tweeted that she won’t be performing in Israel this summmer, but she hopes to appear her in the future. Shakira last visited Israel in 2011.

The Tower points out that BDS is already claiming it as victory, even thought the mixup was caused by Israel’s Channel 20, who jumped the gun and reported the deal was signed before it actually was.
