    Saw the news headlines this morning, obviously it would be unwise to stage a major festival in Lebanon at the moment, I’m sure DP would love to play there but would anyone be prepared to insure such an event at the moment and obviously peoples safety is the most important issue, but can anyone remember didn’t DP play in Tel Aviv with JLT on the first night of the 1991 Gulf conflict? I’m positive I recall that.
