More than 50,000 people are expected to brave the scorching temperatures when Spears takes the stage Monday in Hayarkon Park for one of Tel Aviv's hottest concerts this summer.

"I’ve had such an amazing time performing in Asia over these last few weeks!! One final stop in Tel Aviv on Monday!!" she wrote on Twitter on Saturday before departing for her first-ever concert in Israel.


Last week, the bombshell posted a video to social meeting addressing her awaiting fans in Tel Aviv.

"Tel Aviv here I come!" she wrote in the caption to a short recording addressed to Israeli entertainment reporter Guy Pines. "Hi Guy, we're getting super close to the show now - July 3 at Park Hayarkon - I can't wait to see you all there and hope you're all ready to party," she said in the clip.


Born in Mississippi and raised in Louisiana, the the multi-platinum, Grammy-winning star gained worldwide fame in the late 1990s and 2000s with hits such as 'Oops!... I Did It Again,' 'I'm a Slave 4 U,' and 'Crazy.' Hailed as the 'Queen of Pop,' Spears has sold nearly 150 million records worldwide. 

Spears's performance in Israeli will be the latest among a star-infused summer lineup that has already seen sensations such as Justin Bieber and Aerosmith and will later see Radiohead and Guns N' Roses.
