Seeing Red Over Pink Floyd

Nassau County, New York officials are threatening to take “appropriate legal action” if the operator of the Nassau Coliseum doesn’t cancel a concert featuring former Pink Floyd guitarist Roger Waters.  A vocal Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions advocate, Waters has been labeled an anti-Semite by the Anti-Defamation League. His concerts often feature visuals such a flying pig emblazoned with a Star of David.  One legislator said allowing Waters to perform at a county-run facility “offends the sense of decency held by our residents.” Another wrote to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson calling for Waters’ U.S. visa to be revoked.  Waters grossed $458.7 million on his last tour, making it the biggest tour ever from a solo artist.
