In an interview with the BBC’s Jo Whiley, last January, rocker Jon Bon Jovi reveals Israel is the one place in the world he would like to play that he hasn’t yet (from 06:54).
Back in 2010, Bon Jovi indicated the band would be performing in Israel as part of their 2011 world tour. This garnered the attention of BDS movement, and he was urged to cancel. For whatever reason, the performance was cancelled, and the BDS claimed victory.
When asked is there anywhere in the world you’d like to play that you haven’t yet. Without hesitation, Bon Jovi answered Israel.
This latest statement by Bon Jovi should indicate the cancellation wasn’t ideologically driven, and it can consider this a BDS fail.
