Lenny Kravitz will not be coming our way – at least not for a while. The superstar canceled a concert that was to take place October 6 in Tel Aviv due to a filming schedule conflict.

Only last week Kravitz spoke about his desire to perform in Israel and even hang out in Tel Aviv for a while after the concert, calling the then-upcoming trip “monumental” in an interview with Israeli press.

A number of European concert dates were also canceled.

Those close to Kravitz stressed that the Tel Aviv concert is not off altogether, but postponed to an as-of-yet unknown date.

The musician, famous for hits including “American Woman,” “Fly Away,” and “Are you gonna go my way?”, has never been to Israel, despite his father’s Jewish heritage. Though his mother is not Jewish, Kravitz’s father is from a Jewish family of Ukrainian descent. Kravitz said he “grew up right in the middle.”
