Legendary rock band in negotiations over Israeli stop on its European tour for spring 2011
Legendary rock band Bon Jovi is expected to perform in Israel for the first time: Though the contract is not yet finalized, Israeli producers are reportedly close to signing the band for a performance that will take place on April 27, possibly at Tel Aviv’s Bloomfield Stadium.
In the spring of 2011 Bon Jovi will be on its European tour for its latest album, The Circle, which will make the trip to Israel a likely event.
Unlike recent performances from musicians who many say are past their prime, like Elton John, Rod Stewart and the upcoming visit from Guns and Roses, Bon Jovi is currently at one of its most successful periods, making more than $210 million on its last tour in 2007-2008 – more than any other band that year.
American teen pop star Justin Bieber is set to perform in Israel in April as well, and Barbara Streisand is reportedly negotiating a visit for the following summer.
