It might not be summer just yet; in fact, it's not even spring quite yet. But, that doesn't mean Israelis aren't already looking forward to the summer lineup of concerts that are coming our way. Just because Israel is halfway across the world doesn't mean that international artists forget to come perform here. Israelis have welcomed dozens of exciting musicians for major concerts over the years including Paul McCartney, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Madonna, U2, Elton John, Tina Turner, Aerosmith, and many more. Here's what we have to look forward to this summer so far:
Madonna actually chose Tel Aviv as the kick-off city for her summer 2012 tour and she has not been a stranger to the city in the past. This year on May 29, 2012 you'll have a chance to see her LIVE in Tel Aviv if you happen to be visiting the holy land. Check ticket prices here.
Next up, the Red Hot Chili Peppers will make their Israel debut during the international portion of their 2012 tour. On September 10, 2012 they will be performing here in Tel Aviv at Hayarkon Park when the weather is perfect for outdoor concerts. For tour dates and ticket information, check here.
And last but not least, Guns N' Roses will be making a return appearance to Israel where they will perform in Tel Aviv this summer, likely in July 2012. For specifics on tour dates and prices, check back on their website where details will become available as the date nears, see here.
So there you have it: Madonna, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Guns & Roses are all making an appearance in Israel during the summer months. And likely there's more to come as the summer calendar begins to fill up. There's nothing like the fun festivals and energetic concerts that fill up the summer months on the Mediterranean! Just a few more months to go before the fun begins.
