Electronic music duo Thievery Corporation has canceled its July 24 show in Caesarea, after announcing it earlier this month.

“It is with great sadness and deep regret that we must cancel the planned and announced tour dates in the Middle East. Unforeseen circumstances involving scheduling and internal production logistics make it impossible for us to do the shows,” the group said in a statement released over the weekend.

“We are humbled and appreciative of the response from our fans, and look forward to performing in the region in the near future.”


The duo, made up of Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, has released 10 studio albums in their more than two decades in the business. They’ve played at some of the most influential music festivals across the United States, including Lollapalooza and Coachella. Some of their most popular songs include “Radio Retaliation,” “Lebanese Blonde” and “Sweet Tides.”
