Clarkson's Israeli guitarist Danny Weissfeld told the paper that aside from a few technical matters, the show was set for March or April. Weissfeld said that he initiated the performance. "I talk to Kelly 24 hours a day about Israel and Jerusalem, and the Dead Sea, and that interested her in coming."
