TEL AVIV, Israel, Aug. 6 (UPI) -- Musical acts Cee Lo Green and Megadeth won't be performing in Israel as planned due to ongoing conflict.

Israeli promoter Carmi D. Wurtman confirmed the cancelation of Green's show Aug. 19, citing an order currently in place preventing large groups of people to gather.

"The artist and his crew really wanted to come, but unfortunately we were the ones who had to postpone it because this is not the right time to advertise and push a concert and also because Israel Defense Forces' regional Home Front Command allows gathering of up to a thousand people only," Wurtman told The Hollywood Reporter.

Meanwhile, metal band Megadeth canceled their Wednesday show in Tel Aviv citing travel concerns.

"Due to an inability to confirm the guaranteed passage of the band and their gear into Tel Aviv in time for the show, the upcoming Megadeth concert, scheduled for Wednesday, August 6, 2014, has been cancelled," a post on the band's website said. "The band was looking forward to this concert and is disappointed they will not be able to put on the show for their fans, but expects to return to Tel Aviv on their next international tour."
