NEW YORK - Pink Floyd's Roger Waters, who supports the boycott movement against Israel, pulled out of a speaking engagement at the 92nd Street Y in New York.

“We heard from Roger Waters that he is unable to appear at the event scheduled for April 30,” a statement from the Jewish cultural institution on the Upper East Side of Manhattan said Thursday. “We will be issuing refunds to all ticket-holders.”A Y spokeswoman told JTA that she had no other information on why Waters would not appear as scheduled.

Waters, the creative force behind the iconic band, is a vocal supporter of the Palestinians and has endorsed the boycott, sanctions and divestment campaign against Israel.
