Israeli music fans must have a lot of pent-up frustration after two years with a dearth of live shows.

American superstars Maroon 5 quickly sold out their local debut at Park Hayarkon on  May 9, selling some 60,000 tickets in a short time.

On Wednesday promoters Live Nation and the band’s frontman Adam Levine announced a second show on the following night, May 10.

“We’re adding a second night because of the incredible response from you guys,” Levine said in a video clip Tuesday. “Tel Aviv, we f******* love you, we are so pumped. We’ve never been and we are just so excited to get there.”
