The Rolling Stones will begin their Tel Aviv performance on June 4 at 9:15 p.m., later than planned, to enable religiously observant fans to attend the Park Hayarkon show after the Shavuot holiday.

An announcement released by promoter Shuki Weiss said that following many requests from observant fans, his office and the Tel Aviv Municipality agreed to to extend the 11 p.m. curfew on public performances.

Opening act Rami Fortis will hit the stage at 8 p.m and the Stones will follow at 9:15 p.m.

One possible explanation for the late-breaking arrangements is to generate more ticket sales to the show, which some reports have as being sluggish. Whether a surge from religiously observant Israelis deciding they can now get to the show in time will do the trick and fill the park is in the hands of fate.
