The 21-year-old singer has decided to cancel the gig after being urged to boycott Israel.
Lorde's pulled out of the concert planned for next June after two activists wrote an open letter urging her not to play in an "apartheid state"
They wrote: “Today, millions of people stand opposed to the Israeli government's policies of oppression, ethnic cleansing, human rights violations, occupation and apartheid.
"As part of this struggle, we believe that an economic, intellectual and artistic boycott is an effective way of speaking out against these crimes. This worked very effectively against apartheid in South Africa, and we hope it can work again."
They added: "We've watched as you've used your platform to draw attention to institutional racism, sexism and white privilege. You've talked about the need to "stay informed and stay outraged" about the intolerant and discriminatory policies of the Trump administration.
"We only ask you do the same with the Israeli government."
