Ricky Martin to play Raanana

US superstar moves Israel show to smaller venue

Ricky Martin's local appearance, scheduled for July 3 at the Rishon Lezion Amphitheater, has been moved to the Amphi-Park in Raanana.


In addition, ticket prices for lawn seats have been dropped to NIS 209, whereas prices for reserved seats have gone up to NIS 309.


It should be noted that the Raanana theater is significantly smaller than its Rishon Lezion counterpart. Martin's performance coincides with hip-hop band "Black Eyed Peas" at Bloomfield Stadium in Tel Aviv.


Many people have wondered whether the Israeli concert market is sufficiently large to support two major performances simultaneously, both in terms of ticket sales and media coverage.


Martin's local producer, Haggai Stravis, said the concert was moved for "production reasons," and added that Martin's performance in Rishon Lezion had not been finalized when news reports appeared in the media.
