Rolling Stones to play israel in June? European tour in the summer?
A ‘source in the music industry’ confirmed this morning that The Rolling Stones are in negotiations to perform in Israel in June. The band who played a great gig in Glastonbury last year look like they are booking dates through the summer…
Although nothing has been signed yet, the standing offer of $4.5 mil. is the highest amount Israel has ever offered the band to perform there.
The concert would take place in Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park and tickets would be expected to cost over NIS 400 each.
If the gig goes ahead will the band get loads of flack for playing Israel like Jello Biafra did or should bands be free to play wherever they want?
