More than three years after its first concert in Israel, Bon Jovi is expected to make a comeback to the Jewish state.

According to multiple Hebrew media reports, the rock band will be returning to Israel for a show in Tel Aviv on July 25, 2019. The entertainment news show Good Evening with Guy Pines reported that a link to the site with the Tel Aviv date was available for a short period before it was pulled down.

A local PR representative who was responsible for Bon Jovi's last concert in Israel did not deny the report, but said she "had no more details currently available."
Accordingto Pines, the Israeli concert organizers had intended to wait until December to announce the show on the This House is Not For Sale tour.

In October 2015, the band - fronted by Jon Bon Jovi - gave its inaugural Israel concert to a reported crowd of 50,000 screaming fans.

“We’re finally here. It took me long enough,” Bon Jovi said at the concert, according to Jerusalem Post reviewer Lahav Harkov.

And earlier this month, Bon Jovi appeared to look back on his time in Tel Aviv with fondness. He posted several photos from the show on his Instagram account, writing "#onthisday, Oct. 3, 2015 • Tel Aviv."

It seems the rocker is looking to make some more positive memories in Israel next year.
