The Rolling Stones will perform on June 10 at Ramat Gan Stadium, according to a source close to the production. According to the source, the show will probably be promoted by Shuki Weiss, who represents all LiveNation concerts and events in Israel.
Weiss's office responded to a query by saying, "If there's something to announce, we'll announce it."
The entertainment trade magazine Pollstar reported last week that the Stones were going to expand their '14 On Fire' tour of Abu Dhabi and the Far East this month into a full-fledge European tour in the spring and summer. The tour begins on February 21 in Abu Dhabi and continues through April 5 in Auckland, New Zealand.
The Stones, led by iconic front man Mick Jagger and prototypical guitar god Keith Richards, emerged alongside the Beatles in the early 1960s to become one of the most successful groups in rock and roll history with hits ranging from "Satisfaction" in 1965 to "Honky Tonk Women" in 1969 and "Miss You" in 1978. Since their acclaimed 1981 album Tattoo You, the band has lived mainly on its reputation, sporadically releasing pedestrian new material but packing in stadiums and arenas around the world for their live show.
In December, the Stones' bass player Darryl Jones visited Israel and performed with the Australian-based hard rockers Dead Daisies at a sold-out show at the Barby Club in Tel Aviv.
