Yardbirds to perform in Israel

VIDEO - In the 1960s, English rock band Yardbirds included three of the greatest guitarists of all times, basically starting the careers of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.


But none of these guitar legends went back to cooperation with the band when it resumed its activity in the 1990s.


One of band's greatest hits, 'For Your Love'


And yet, the pioneering band returned to the stage with two of its original members: Guitarist Chris Dreja and drummer Jim McCarty.


Together with additional members – singer Andy Mitchell, guitarist Ben King and bassist David Smale – they will arrive in Israel for one performance, which will be held on October 29 at Tel Aviv's Barby club.


The first 200 tickets will be offered for NIS 169 (about $50). Seats on the club's terrace will cost NIS 229 ($68).


In the past year the band toured Europe and Japan, performing its old and famous songs like "For Your Love" and "Shapes of Things".


After performing in Israel, the Yardbirds are expected to launch a long tour in the United States.
