Amidst a whirlwind of controversy, Radiohead will take the stage at Hayarkon Park in Tel Aviv, Israel this evening. In defending the band’s decision to go through with the concert, despite calls for a boycott from Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters and others, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke explained, “Music, art and academia is about crossing borders not building them, about open minds not closed ones, about shared humanity, dialogue and freedom of expression.” In keeping with that ethos, the Israeli company behind the concert personally intervened in order to gain entry for a Palestinian fan hoping to attend the concert.
