Everything was ready for the concert, tickets went on sale, but it seems Carlos Santana will not be arriving in Israel this summer. The legendary guitarist and musician, who was scheduled to perform in Tel Aviv-Jaffa's Bloomfield Stadium on June 3, has postponed his gig to an unknown date.


Despite successful ticket sales in the past few weeks, Santana decided to call off his Israel concert. The guitarist's agency released an apology on Thursday, saying that Santana and his band were on a tight schedule forcing them to postpone various destinations in the upcoming concert tour, not just in Israel.


“We look forward to performing in the many historic places that Santana has long wanted to return to," said Michael Vrionis, CEO of Santana Management.


The concert's Israeli producer Shuki Weiss said in response, "I was amazed by the news. I am very surprised and very sorry for the change in the artist's schedule."


And what about the tickets purchased by the Israeli audience? According to the concert's production office in Israel, "The thousands of people who bought a ticket for the performance are invited to collect their money at the different sales points. Those who purchased tickets with a credit card will have the transaction canceled automatically. Those who paid cash are invited to arrive at the sales point starting January 31."
