Pink’s performance will be part of an annual soccer tournament organized by Jewish-Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, the owner of the Chelsea Football Club currently coached by Israeli manager Avram Grant.
This will be the first visit to Israel for Pink, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore. She is set to land in Israel on Saturday, perform in Tel-Aviv on Sunday (1.27), and leave the country the following day.
The singer’s performance will be part of an annual soccer tournament, sponsored by Abramovich and by the Russian Television station “Channel One”, taking place from January 23 to January 31. The teams participating in the tournament this year are CSKA Moscow, Spartak Moscow, FC Dynamo Kyiv, FK Crvena zvezda (Red Star Belgrade), and FC Beitar Jerusalem.
Twenty-eight year old Pink released her fourth studio album, 'I'm Not Dead', which has been successful worldwide, in 2006.
She has since embarked on a world tour, released a Special Edition album and a live DVD, as well as starring in a horror movie.
