Dulli Refuses To Pull Plug On Tel Aviv Gig

Former AFGHAN WHIGS star GREG DULLI is ignoring conflict concerns in the Middle East and pressing ahead with plans to play his first show in Tel Aviv, Israel. DEPECHE MODE and DEEP PURPLE recently pulled out of shows in Israel due to the escalating crisis between Israel and Lebanon, but in a posting on his website, Dulli states he has too much respect for fans in the Middle East to scrap a 30 August (06) TWILIGHT SINGERS show for his own safety. He writes, "While I am saddened by the loss of life and property on both sides, my belief in freedom, democracy and the peaceful existence of the state of Israel remains steadfast. "To this end, the Twilight Singers show in Tel Aviv on Aug. 30 will go on as scheduled. We look forward to performing our songs for an audience who has yet to see us in their own country and hope to be visiting in a time of peace."
