After having visited Israel multiple times in the past, the British rock bank Smokie will be returning in October as part of an international tour.
The British pop band, which achieved the peak of their popularity in the mid 1970s, will perform in Haifa, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. They begin October 27 at the Haifa Convention Center. The next day they will perform at the International Convention Center in Jerusalem, and on October 30 and 31, they will perform at the Mann Auditorium in Tel Aviv.
Smokie’s hits include Living Next Door to Alice, Lay Back in the Arms of Someone, If You Think You Know How to Love Me, Needles and Pins, and I'll Meet You at Midnight.
The band started out in the 1970s with legendary vocalist Chris Norman, who no longer appears with the group, and had a good success in the following decades, with performances around the globe and selling more than 30 million albums.
Smokie's current lineup includes some of the original band members.
