American rock group Red Hot Chili Peppers, who were set to perform in Israel in June, have pushed back their much-anticipated concert a year due to the coronavirus outbreak, the organizers of the show said on Monday.
Last month sources said the producers were trying to postpone the event until September 2020, but later decided to delay the concert until June 23, 2021 in order to ensure it actually takes place.
The production company also said the tickets purchased for the original date will be valid for next year's show. "Same seats, same price, and on the same conditions."
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 canceled due to strict health guidelines meant to combat the spread of the pathogen.
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 affected 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.
