Adams' Peace Concerts Cancelled Over Security

Rocker BRYAN ADAMS has been forced to scrap his peace concert in Israel following a number of security alerts. The concerts, calling for a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, were to be held simultaneously in Tel Aviv and the West Bank town of Jericho on 18 October (07). But security scares led to the Jericho gig being called off last week (ends12Oct07), followed by the cancellation of the Tel Aviv concert on Sunday (14Oct07). Organiser Daniel Lubetzky says, "Extremist ideologists have threatened our participants in Jericho, and we felt it is our responsibility not to play with their lives. "Our mission is not to entertain. It is to mobilize moderate voices. If we have to postpone, we have to postpone." The free event was organised by the New York-based One Voice campaign which is aiming to collect one million signatures to back an agreement for peace in the middle eastern states. The group boasts support from Hollywood stars including Brad Pitt, Natalie Portman and Danny De Vito.
