1. non Jews can break the Sabbath
jochair thijssen ,   kfar saba Israel   (07.11.17)
Guns and Roses are not Jews and they are not obliged to keep the Sabbath,
the rabbis are making unnecessary noise.
2. Change the curfew not the Shabat

3. Satan will use any tool to get people to break the Shabbat.

Perhaps his greatest pal was Emperor Constantine who changed the Shabbat in 325 A.D. (ce) to the pagan first day (Sunday for sun worshippers) and made it a death penalty to observe the Jewish Sabbath and Jewish holy days. Christians should beware since Hebrews chapter 4 (Holy Name Bible) says the Sabbath of YHVH is the seventh day and ONLY those who observe it enter YHVH's rest. YHVH is the Eternal Father. Even the Roman Catholic Catechism says the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Bible but they celebrate it on Sunday. They forget to tell Catholics to observe the sunset Friday to sunset Saturday Sabbath, however, when one should not buy or sell food or wares or work except to do good.
4. Only in a land far-far away in a distant Galaxy...too funny!

7. My opinion
Leah   (07.12.17)
I agree totally that it is a bonus. And I am one of the religious people who is going to the concert! I've been waiting for months to see them and am upset to be missing a part of it but I will be seeing most of the show..... still it would have been nice if they could have gotten permission to start later and end later to accommodate all their fans.....
8. The objection to moving up the concert by "religious fans"
Howard Kane ,   Israel   (07.13.17)
Why does anyone think the reference is to haredim? It's the knitted-kippa crowd who will be attending.
9. Much Ado about nothing in the shtetl
Borash ,   Haifa   (07.15.17)
To Andy Levy, Josh Steele and their like. YES, religion and freedom are diametrically opposed and Judaism is no exception particularly the medieval Orthodoxy. The absence of separation between religion and state and the inept political system in which every government of Israel has been subject to small religious parties blackmail made Israel ungovernable. The net result is a country runs by a religious fundamental minority engaged in religious oppression. There is a little difference between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Israel. Both are run by corrupt religious assholes whether it is Ayatollah Khomeini or Aryetollah Deri.

You don't have a genuine Facebook photograph - that's actually Josh Radnor - and your location is 'living in the UK' - so basically, you're a liar. As for your comments above - religious do NOT have the freedom that secular Jews have. See, I'm free to go to the concert an hour earlier - are you? I'm FREE to go out out in my car on shabbat and drive to nice restaurants - can you? The religious sector are very limited in what they can do on holidays and weekends. Fact is they want to STOP our freedom by forcing shops and eateries to close on shabbat - why should they CARE what others are doing? Who are you or they to tell me what I should and should not do on shabbat. Ain't gonna happen. Now, go get a life - in the UK.
