Bruno Mars cancels his second concert in Israel

The declared war between Israel and the Gaza militias has surprised Bruno Mars in the middle of a tour there. This Saturday morning the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas infiltrated dozens of armed men into Israel, causing 300 deaths and 1,500 injuries. It was the largest leak in its territory in history. In response, the Israeli Army has bombed the Gaza Strip, leaving 250 dead. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declared the country “at war.”

Bruno Mars had performed in Israel for the first time last Wednesday, October 4, night. This Saturday, October 7, he had to offer a second concert in Tel Aviv, which had to be cancelled.

The brief statement simply says that tickets for the Bruno Mars concert will be returned to the original accounts. The last photo of Mars on Instagram is precisely in Tel Aviv. As seen in the Setlist, it was a typical concert of almost 20 songs, including hits like ‘Leave the Door Open’ from his side project Silk Sonic, ‘Locked Out of Heaven’ and ‘Uptown Funk’ as an encore.
