According to sources close to the singer-songwriter, the negotiation for the performance is nearing completion. Rumor has it, Shuki Weiss, an Israeli producer, will be charged with preparing Sir Elton John's colorful show.

A spokesperson for Weiss commented on the rumor stating, "When we have something to update, we will be happy to update."

Elton John performed in Israel for the first time in 1980 in the Cultural Center in Tel Aviv and in the Jerusalem Convention Center. He visited again in 1993 for another concert but immediately returned to London citing a dislike of the attitude of local media and photographers as his reasoning. The show's producer convinced him to return to Israel just in time for the show to begin in Park Hayarkon, Tel Aviv.

In summer 2010 John came to Israel for the third time for a performance in Ramat Gan Stadium.
