The 80's metal band Bon Jovi are planning to perform at a concert in Israel, lead singer Jon Bon Jovi told the host during an interview on CNN's Larry King Live that aired last week.
The band's concert is expect to take place sometime in 2011 as part of their world tour in support of their 11th album, The Circle.
When asked in what venue his band would perform in Israel, Bon Jovi told
Larry King, "Whatever the Olympic Stadium is."

The tour will mark Bon Jovi's first appearance in both Greece and Israel.
Bon Jovi's planned visit to Israel comes after pop-singer Rod Stewart's
June appearance at Ramat Gan Stadium. The lead singer's tour
announcement also occurred after several concert cancellations in Israel
by prominent international musicians such as the Pixies and Gorillaz
Soundclash, in response to pressure from pro-Palestinian boycott groups.
