Culture Minister Limor Livnat on Tuesday commented on popular British singer Elvis Costello's recent cancellation of two shows in Israel, saying "an artist who boycotts his Israeli fanbase is not worthy of performing in front of them."

Costello announced earlier this week that the political situation and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict had made him decide to cancel the shows.
