Boycotting concerts is a symbolic gesture, to refuse to contribute to a country where atrocities are being committed is to say you won't associate with them.Artists did this to South Africa during apartheid, to Israel because of Palestine and recently Bahrian, this is nothing new and can be an important way of showing solidarity with those who are suffering as well as draw public support to their cause. It still does more than letting yourself be used a propaganda tool which make no mistake, every artist performing in S.A is being used for.

it is a symbolyc gesture, which can be used as propaganda both ways though.
maybe I am too materialistic, but I still fail to see how any symbolic gesture like this would help me if I was a victim.
