She reluctantly announced that she would cancel her visit to Europe and therefore to France. The Israeli singer, Noa, who was due to perform in Hem (North) and Nancy (Meurthe-et-Moselle) in the coming days, canceled her tour on the old continent for security reasons.
Or rather, it was the promoters of this tour who preferred to cancel all of its dates. “They informed me that they thought my band and I would not be safe to play in Europe,” regrets the artist in a video message posted on his Instagram account. Since October 7 and the Hamas attack on Israelin many Europeans, the number of anti-Semitic acts has sharply increased.
“No guarantee of safety”, according to its producers
The producers of the 54-year-old Israeli-American, an active activist for “peace and reconciliation” in this area, had requested a strengthening of security measures around the movements of Achinoam Nini (her real name). But they entrusted France Inter not having received any guarantee of this security around hotels and concert venues.
“I was very happy to come here, because it is very important for me to sing for peace these days. As you all know, I am the voice of peace, and have been for 30 years, recalls the interpreter of I don’t know (1994 hit). There are a lot of dangerous people out there who claim to be for peace but are actually spreading hatred and violence. And these people ruined everything for all of us. So I will stay at home. I hope to return to Europe to share my music and my message. »
