Get the party started. Pop singer Pink is set to arrive in Israel this weekend and perform at a private, by invitation only party to be held at the Hangar 11 club in the Tel Aviv harbor.
Pink’s performance will be part of an annual soccer tournament organized by Jewish-Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, the owner of the Chelsea Football Club currently coached by Israeli manager Avram Grant.
This will be the first visit to Israel for Pink, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore. She is set to land in Israel on Saturday, perform in Tel-Aviv on Sunday (1.27), and leave the country the following day.
The singer’s performance will be part of an annual soccer tournament, sponsored by Abramovich and by the Russian Television station “Channel One”, taking place from January 23 to January 31. The teams participating in the tournament this year are CSKA Moscow, Spartak Moscow, FC Dynamo Kyiv, FK Crvena zvezda (Red Star Belgrade), and FC Beitar Jerusalem.
During the tournament, the participating teams are set to receive cash prizes valued roughly at $2 million. The team that wins the tournament will receive $1 million, the runner up $500,000, and all other teams will receive between $100,000 to $150,000, depending on their placement.
Twenty-eight year old Pink released her fourth studio album, 'I'm Not Dead', which has been successful worldwide, in 2006.
She has since embarked on a world tour, released a Special Edition album and a live DVD, as well as starring in a horror movie.
