Lorde is considering cancelling a gig in Israel after receiving an open letter from two fans
Lorde said she is “learning all the time”.

SINGER LORDE HAS said she may cancel an upcoming gig in Israel after reading an open letter written by two fans.

Justine Sachs, who is Jewish, and Palestinian Nadia Abu-Shanab wrote an open letter to the singer saying:

A performance in Israel sends the wrong message. Playing in Tel Aviv will be seen as giving support to the policies of the Israeli government, even if you make no comment on the political situation.”
We’re two young women, one Jewish, one Palestinian … We feel strongly about this”.

Lorde, having read the letter, says she has been speaking to various people about what she should do.


Lorde is due to play Israel next June in support of her latest album Melodrama.
