Now it's official: Paul McCartney coming to Israel

Rock legend, ex-Beatle to perform in Tel Aviv on September 25

The uncertainty is over: Ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney will perform at Tel Aviv's Hayarkon Park on September 25. The rock legend's show is expected to be one of the biggest in Israel's history.


McCartney is expected to perform many Beatles songs as well as songs from his illustrious solo career. The producer behind the show is David Zarzevski, who in the past booked prominent performers such as Erika Badu and Lauryn Hill.


Journalists are scheduled to be briefed later this week ahead of the big show. The briefing will include all the details about the concert, including ticket prices and McCartney's schedule in Israel.


As this will be the first time McCartney performs in Israel, he is expected to play a special set that mostly includes well-known hits. Ynet was told that the process of closing the contract vis-à-vis McCartney's managers was one of the most difficult ever for Israeli producers seeking to book an international performer.


The production costs are estimated at several million dollars, but the performance is expected to do more than just break even.


McCartney, 66, is considered one of the most influential musicians in the past 100 years.
