“HELLO…” Musical legend Lionel Richie excited to perform in Israel

The 70-year-old musical legend Lionel Richie is finally coming to Israel to perform for the first time ever — and he is very excited.

“Hello Israel, this is Lionel Richie, and I can’t wait to perform in Israel for the first time ever. We’re going to dance all night long. So go to vote and I’ll see you on the second of March in Tel Aviv. See you then,” the singer wrote on social media.

The singer will perform on March 2 in Tel Aviv as part of his worldwide “Hello” tour.

It is always a coup when an artist of Richie’s status comes to perform in Israel because it is a given that they would be under pressure from anti-Israel movements to cancel. The anti-Israel group Code Pink is one of the groups that pressured Richie not to perform in Israel.

The group accused Israel of “oppression and dispossession of the Palestinian people” and threatened the singer, saying “if you choose to follow through with your performance in Tel Aviv, it will act as an endorsement of Israel’s brutal systems of military occupation and apartheid.”

Richie blocked Code Pink’s Twitter account, which is a big #BDSFail

Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) activists frequently pressures artists to cancel shows but while they’ve been successful some times, others like Jennifer Lopez and Bon Jovi have decided to perform anyway.
