Grammy award-winning American musician Pharrell Williams has bowed out of his July 21 at Live Park in Rishon Lezion.

Promoters for the show released a statement saying that scheduling conflicts were behind the cancellation and that Williams hoped to reschedule the show in the future and apologize to all local fans.

The show had been heavily publicized, with posters appearing on most Tel Aviv corners in recent weeks. Ticket holders will receive a full refund from Sunday July 17.

With a phenomenally successful career in the music biz, Pharrell is undoubtedly one of today’s most talented and multi-faceted producers, writers and performers. As a solo performer, Pharrell has scored international number one hits, most notably the massively successful tune “Happy” and has crafted chart-toppers for Madonna, Kanye West, Beyonce, Rolling Stones, Miley Cyrus and more. He is currently a judge on the hit American reality talent show The Voice.
