Rolling Stones Touch Down in Israel

The Rolling Stones landed in Israel two days before their scheduled Tel Aviv concert.

The band will play Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park on Wednesday evening, at the close of the holiday of Shavuot. The band announced would over the weekend that it would push the beginning of its concert to 9:15, to enable religiously observant concert goers to attend, after the Tel Aviv Municipality agreed to extend the 11 p.m. curfew on public performances.

The concert is part of the band’s ON FIRE 14 European tour. It is the Rolling Stones first time performing in Israel.

Band frontman Mick Jagger reportedly had a four-hour dinner at a Tel Aviv restaurant shortly after landing and returned to his hotel room after 2 a.m., according to the Times of Israel.
