British rock icon Alan Parsons and his band will be returning to Israel for a first in their career – a performance with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.
The show will take place on June 4 at the Bronfman Auditorium in Tel Aviv.
We are very excited about returning to Israel once again.. It will be great pleasure to work with the Israeli Philharmonic and to play in such a prestigious venue,” said Parsons in a statement.
The Alan Parsons Project, Parsons’s famed band, has performed in Israel three times – in 2010, 2015 and 2017.
Adapting their music to a full orchestral sound is not a stretch, as the Alan Parsons Project utilized extensive, multi-tracked studio embellishments to create their lush sound.
Avi Shoshani, secretary general of the Israel Philharmonic, stated that he was looking forward to the integration of the two units.
I’m delighted that Alan Parsons, an international musical icon, will be performing with the Israel Philharmonic. I have no doubt that the classical arrangements of his big hits will touch not only his longtime fans in Israel, but music lovers of all ages,” he said.
Parsons started out as an engineer at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London and worked on The Beatles album named after the studios, a number of early Paul McCartney solo albums, and perhaps most famously, Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. He debuted the Alan Parsons Project in 1975 and enjoyed huge success with a string of albums like Tales of Mystery and Imagination, I Robot, The Turn of a Friendly Card and Eye in the Sky.
Parson’s longtime band includes Israeli bassist Guy Erez.

Tickets to the show – ranging from NIS 255-955 – are available at *3766.
