1960s rock legend Donovan has pulled out of a performance in Israel for the second time in two weeks.  Originally scheduled to appear in Tel Aviv earlier this month, the 69-year-old  folk singer postponed the show in the aftermath of the  Simta pub shooting and the resultant search for Nashat Milhem.

The concert was rescheduled for Wednesday night at the Noga Theater in Jaffa, but on Monday, Donovan announced that he would not be arriving in Israel this week.

"The contract arrangements for a Donovan concert have not been completed,"  tweeted Donovan's official feed.

However Progstage Productions, which was promoting the show, issued a statement saying that there were no problems with the contract and that they were trying to clarify the reasons for the cancellation.
