Backstreet Boys

Israeli Concerts Cancelled

The Backstreet Boys have cancelled concerts in Tel Aviv ... for obvious reasons.

The band says the July 29-31 shows have been cut from their schedule -- but they're optimistically trying to re-book for next year.

The band follows in the footsteps of Neil Young & Crazy Horse and Paul Anka ... who also cancelled their concerts in the wake of the escalating Middle-East conflict.

Backstreet says, "This is a major disappointment for the band and fans as this was to be our first visit to Israel and we looked forward to meeting our fans."

They probably thought the assortment of butt plugs they always carry would be mistaken as bombs by the IDF when they landed.
