Rolling Stones confirm June 4 Israel show!

Rolling Stones - Confirmed
On March 13th, we reported that the chances of a Rolling Stones concert in Israel this summer were growing. Today, Israeli producer Shuki Weiss confirmed that the Legendary British band finally has set a date for a concert in Tel Aviv for their 14 on Fire World Tour, on June 4!
Tickets for the concert are to go on sale on Sunday, March 30, at 9 am. The tickets cost NIS 695 ($200) for the cheapest spaces, NIS 1,790 ($515) for the “golden ring”, and NIS 2,850 ($820) for VIP seats.
“For the first time in my 35 years in the business I have no words to express the size of an event of this kind in Israel,” Weiss told reporters as he announced the concert.
Regarding the ticket prices, Weiss said that they were cheaper than the sums the band charged in other places around the world, and that the concert would boost tourism to Israel. “We are expecting thousands of tourists to come to the show,” he said.
He pointed out that Rolling Stones tickets for other venues that went on sale yesterday had already been sold out.
Ynet reported two weeks ago that Yarkon Park had been reserved on June 4 as the venue for the legendary British rock group’s performance, and that the date had been approved by the band’s representatives.
The previous date requested by the band members, in late May, created a problem for the Tel Aviv and Ramat Gan municipalities, as Justin Timberlake‘s concert had already been set for May 28 and, in favor of the area’s residents, major events cannot be held at the park on dates so close to one another.=
Other than Weiss, several leading producers, including Marcel Avraham and Gadi Oron, had been fighting for the privilege to bring the Stones to Israel. The lucky winner gets to produce the prestigious show for an estimated $5 million.
