Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney landed in Israel Tuesday night ahead Thursday concert at Tel Aviv's Yarkon Park.
He was expected to hold a rehearsal on Wednesday, followed by a short press conference.
The world-renowned musician was reportedly planning to visit Jerusalem before returning to the UK on Friday.
McCartney arrived on board a private jet and was accompanied by a large group of musicians and technical staff.
In preparation for Thursday night's show, police have released a list of traffic adjustments, changes to bus and train routes and a request to the public to help ensure that one of the biggest musical acts ever to hit Israel goes off without a hitch.
"What's important is that people use public transportation as much as possible," Tel Aviv Police spokesman Benny Telles said. "Use trains and buses, and we're also asking that people don't show up en mass at the last minute. Otherwise, we're looking at this much like the Avoda Ivrit show in Tel Aviv a few months ago - we're expecting everything to be fine."
