Rolling Stones 'Excited' To Play Israel

Listen up, Israel: The Rolling Stones are excited to see you.

A video released by the band, on Tuesday shows guitarist Ronnie Wood saying: “We are so excited to be playing Tel Aviv on June the 4th. We can’t wait to be there, and we can’t wait to see you all in the park.”


The band has resumed its 14-country world tour, which was suspended in March after the death of Mick Jagger’s girlfriend, fashion designer L’Wren Scott. First stop: Oslo, where they first played on tour back in 1965.

The Rolling Stones will be appearing at Tel Aviv’s Hayarkon Park on June 4. Israeli fans can request songs via the band’s website or mobile app.
