Celebrity Grapevine

Shlomo Artzi and Shalom Hanoch pleasantly surprised to see the volume of pre-performance ticket sales.

Not everyone yearns for change, and there's no rule to say that veteran entertainers will prove pass for new generations. Case in point: veteran singers Shlomo Artzi and Shalom Hanoch, who teamed up for a couple of summer gigs that developed into 22 performances attended by more than 100,000 fans - largely teenyboppers. Although each has a vast following in his own right, the two were pleasantly surprised to see the volume of pre-performance ticket sales. They've also done very nicely from a CD of their joint appearance, with sales topping 40,000. Those fans who missed their summer season will have an opportunity to catch up with Artzi and Hanoch during the winter. The two have agreed to fit two or three joint concerts into their busy schedules, but chances are that by the time winter is over they will have more than doubled the planned number. WhenDana International won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1998, not only did she have a great song ("Diva" composed by Zvika Pik), but also a fabulous feathered ensemble created by Jean Paul Gaultier for "only" $250,000. When "Diva" was one of the 14 songs chosen for Celebration - the televised extravaganza marking the 50th anniversary of the Eurovision Song Contest - Dana again turned to JPG to add some eye-catching lan to her appearance. It's difficult to keep up with the changing hair colors and styles of actress/model Miri Bohadana. In the initial series of Love Around the Corner screened on Channel Two she had short, wavy, almost platinum blonde hair. In the current series the shade is closer to copper, the styling is more sophisticated, and the hair has been straightened. For a photo shoot for the Golbary winter catalogue that she posed for in St. Petersburg, Bohadana went back to blonde, this time with a slight reddish tinge and just below shoulder length, with the mere hint of a wave.
