(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to The long-awaited Neil Young concert scheduled for Thursday in Tel Aviv was canceled due to security concerns about the ongoing rocket fire from Gaza.

Though organizers tried until the last minute to get permission for the concert to take place, it was determined unsafe to have tens of thousands of people gathered in one place, given the current security situation.

“It is with great sorrow that we are forced to announce the cancelation of the Neil Young and Crazy Horse concert that was to be staged this coming Thursday,” the concert organizers said in a statement.
