VIDEO - Santana,
and the Pixies
are only some of the artists who have decided to call off their concerts in Israel
for political reasons, but it appears Rod Stewart is not going to let his Israeli fans down.
The British pop singer who sold millions of albums over the past five decades, is scheduled to perform
in Tel Aviv on June 30.

We met with Stewart while he was rehearsing at the legendary Pinewood Studios outside London, where all the James Bond movies were filmed.
Stewart is in the middle of his "Soulbook" tour, which includes covers of American rhythm and blues classics.
Although he has not released an album with original material since the 1990s, Stewart tells Ynet that he may still write new songs (and regrets this statement shortly afterwards).
He also talks about his renewed cooperation with Jeff Beck, with whom he started his magnificent career, about his daughter Ruby, World Cup songs, and why he waited 27 years before visiting Israel again.
