He doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. And to celebrate his 95th birthday, French singer Charles Aznavour is – what else – embarking on a world tour.

The French-Armenian crooner will be returning to Tel Aviv next year, just a year and a half after his last performance in Israel.

Aznavour will take the stage at the Menorah Mivtachim Arena on June 29, 2019, just a few weeks after he celebrates his 95th birthday.


The living legend has released more than 1,300 songs and nearly 300 albums over his 70-year career, and tours almost nonstop around the globe. During his most recent concert in Tel Aviv, in October 2017, Aznavour “brilliantly illuminated the stage with his presence and voice – singing in French, Italian, Spanish and Russian,” according to a Jerusalem Post review of the show.

Aznavour’s 95th birthday tour will begin in January 2019, and take him around the globe. But before the new year even rings in, the singer will perform in Japan, Ukraine, France and Switzerland. For Aznavour, 95 is the new 25.

Tickets go on sale July 1 via leaan.co.il and will start at NIS 295.
