Tom Jones just can’t get enough of Israel. This summer, the Welsh singer will return to Tel Aviv for a show on July 3 at the Menora Mivtachim Arena.

Jones has performed in Israel several times in the past, including in 2013 and 2017.

With smash hits like “It’s Not Unusual,” “Delilah,” “She’s a Lady” and “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again,” Jones has been a household name for decades. In more recent years, the recording artist has become known as one of the coaches on The Voice UK.

In 2013, after performing in Israel, Jones said he is opposed to boycotting the Jewish state: “I think entertainers should entertain. They should go wherever – there shouldn’t be any restrictions.... I don’t see why anyone would mix up the two things – entertainment and politics.”

Jones rocketed to fame in the 1960s, winning a Grammy in 1966, and since then has released 40 studio albums and toured the globe. In 1989 he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and in 2006 he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth for his services to music.

Tickets for the show – which range from NIS 275 to NIS 1,350 – will be available via or *8780. Ticket sales for El Al Matmid members and Fly Card holders begin on Monday, while sales for the wider public start Tuesday.
