As published by Yedioth Ahronoth, producers Guy Beser and Shay Mor-Yosef, owners of Bluestone Productions, booked Beyonce for a performance on October 26th with the possibility for an additional show. Producers sent an advance payment estimated to be in the amount of over one million dollars to the singer’s representatives, while Hayarkon Park was reserved for a week. In addition, producers sent representatives to plan and construct a stage in accordance with the star’s demands.

The production company also reached an agreement for ticket sales with Israeli credit card companies and advertisements, which were supposed to begin shortly. A press conference had been planned for next Tuesday to announce ticket sales for the first show.

As a result of the decision not the extend the tour, performances in Dubai and South Africa were also cancelled, indicating that the decision to cancel in Israel did not stem from political considerations nor as a result of the pressures of the BDS movement.

Beser and Mor-Yosef of the Bluestone Productions company, who worked for a year to produce two large performances and traveled back and forth to London and Los Angeles to finalize arrangements and make adjustments, were disappointed by the sudden change. The advanced payment will be refunded, but expenses related to travel and cancellation fees, including Hayarkon Park, will not be. Despite the setback, the Israeli producers hope to reschedule performances for spring and summer 2017.
