American rock group Red Hot Chili Peppers, who were set to perform in Israel in June, is now likely to postpone the anticipated concert until September due to coronavirus outbreak, the organizers of the show said Monday.
The legendary band was booked to perform at Tel Aviv's HaYarkon Park on June 10 back in November.
The recent COVID-19 pandemic, however, resulted in most cultural events being cancelled due to strict health guidelines meant to combat the spread of the pathogen.
With less than two months remaining until the scheduled concert date, the production company in charge of the event tells Ynet the show will most likely be postponed until September. The organizers say they don't believe the current restrictions, which ban all public gatherings, will be lifted sometime this summer.
The U.S. group last performed in Israel in 2012, in what was the band's first gig in the Holy Land.
This isn't the first concert to be affect by the current health crisis. Australian rock band, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, who were also set to perform in Tel Aviv this summer, has postponed its show in Israel until 2021.
