Over 1,000 people came to the Theatre Club in Jaffa Saturday to see the great guitarist Marty Friedman.  


He delivered the goods, captivating the audience for two whole hours.

Friedman (44), who is Jewish, is known for his spectacular performance with Megadeth in Israel a decade ago. Back then, he played Hatikva, Israel's national anthem, on the stage. Saturday, he did it again. He opened the performance with the national anthem. The audience sang along with him, or rather, screamed along…


After the Hatikva, Friedman and his excellent band (especially crazy drummer Jeremy Colson) continued with a rocking two hour evening,, not losing an ounce of energy for even a moment. 


The band is currently on a European tour. They were in Tel Aviv for less than 24 hours. Three hours after the concert they were already on a plane to the Czech Republic were they played Sunday night.  


"Last time I was in Israel I didn't spend much time in Tel Aviv," said Friedman, who now resides in Japan. "I just realized how close everything is to the sea and just how beautiful it all is. So, next time I come here I'll also take a few days holiday."
