The May 25 Tel Aviv performance of American political soul/jazz pioneer Gil Scott-Heron is in doubt, only days after it was announced. 

Appearing in London this week at the Royal Festival Hall, Scott-Heron said from the stage that he wouldn’t be going to Israel because “we don’t like wars,” The Guardian reported on Wednesday.

According to reports, his concert had been repeatedly disrupted by hecklers calling on him to cancel the Israel show.
