Legendary Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams is on his way to the Holy Land, after announcing two concert dates in Israel in December 2017.
Adams, best known for his songs "Summer of '69" and "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" among others, will perform December 4 in Tel Aviv and December 6 in Jerusalem.
The concerts in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem will form part of Adams' European "Get Up Tour," beginning in June 2017.
The musician was due to perform in Israel in 2007, when he was scheduled to headline
concerts for peace featuring both Israeli and Palestinian artists in Tel Aviv and Jericho, in partnership with OneVoice. The concerts were cancelled at short notice when staff members and some performers were the subject of threats of violence.
In August 2014, Vancouver-based Adams tweeted his criticism of Israeli military action in the Gaza Strip during Operation Protective Edge and the alleged "annexation of the Palestinians."
The concerts conclude a busy year for Israeli music fans, with musicians including Justin Bieber, Britney Spears, Aerosmith, Guns N' Roses, Regina Spektor and the Pet Shop Boys all taking the stage in Israel. Tickets for the two arena performances will go on general sale on Sunday (June 4), ranging from NIS 199 - 899.
