The long, impressive list of summer concerts by big-time international artists keeps growing. Two repeat performers will be returning to Israel in June, promoter Shuki Weiss announced this week.

British rock icon Morrissey will be appearing on July 21 at the Tel Aviv Exhibition Grounds, almost four years to the day after after his last show here.

The former leader of The Smiths has been on his own for so long that he’s been able to release a greatest hits album – The Very Best of Morrissey – which he’s promoting on a world tour.

The week before the show, former Soundgarden leader Chris Cornell returns to Israel for two solo acoustic shows, under the banner “Songbook” on July 16 at the Zappa Shoni Amphitheater in Binyamina, and July 17 at the Nokia Arena in Tel Aviv.

Cornell, who last appeared here in 2009, has experienced an inconsistent post-Soundgarden career with Audoslave and pop/electro solo projects with Timbaland.

But his last show here was a crowd-pleasing effort, including Soundgarden hits, covers of Led Zeppelin and Bob Marley and, of course, Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean.”

“Songbook” finds him exploring his various influences and talking about them between songs.
