The Curious Case of Bryan Adams’ Israel Tour


Canadian rocker Bryan Adams is on his way to Israel for a number of concerts.

Two concert dates were mentioned when news of his plans were first announced in June. But due to both those shows being sold out, a third one was added, which was already almost sold out as of a few days ago.

I am very curious about this tour, given Adams’ vocal anti-Israel tweets during the last Gaza war. Added curiosity: he does not seem to have been under pressure from Roger Waters and company for coming.

Is this Adams’ way of saying Please Forgive Me? Or a matter of All For Love (of $$)? Either way, tens of thousands of Israelis are going to be in Heaven – or on Cloud Number Nine.

I will be following his tour eagerly, if not just to see what he says in any press conferences or at the concerts themselves.

Update: The plot thickens.

I have to ask: given I was very vocal in criticizing him (and the most Laura may have done was to retweet me), how come he did not block me?
