Bon Jovi will perform in Israel next summer, Haaretz reported on Tuesday.
The planned date for the performance, July 25, 2019, was revealed by accident in a newsletter the American rock band sent to fans. It will take place at the Yarkon Park in Tel Aviv, according to the report.
It will cost some $2.4 million to bring the group to Israel, according to the Channel 12 TV entertainment show “Good Night with Guy Pines.”
The performance will mark the second time that Bon Jovi has performed in Israel in recent years. The band also played in Israel in the summer of 2015 at the same Tel Aviv venue.
A lot of pressure has been put on musicians to not come to Israel, due to the large influence of Roger Walters a BDS activist and former Pink Floyd frontman
Some have caved in, most recently New Zealand pop star Lorde and American singer and songwriter Lana Del Rey.
Other such as Cave, Radiohead, blues artist Alicia Keys, pop duo Pet Shop Boys, and Colombian born pop star Shakira are among the artists who have all performed in Israel in recent years, despite calls to cancel their shows.
