McCartney to perform in Israel 43 years after ban

August 27, 2008

JERUSALEM (CNN) — Some 43 years after a Beatles concert was — according to popular belief — banned by Israel, Paul McCartney has announced he’ll perform there in September.

The show, which will be held September 25 in Tel Aviv, had been rumored for months.

Promoters are saying it will be one of the biggest concerts ever held in Israel, and they hope it will encourage other top stars to come to Israel.

A web site offering tickets for the concert put prices at 1,500 shekels and 490 shekels or between $426.86 and $139.44 U.S. dollars.

Israelis “will finally get the chance to experience a night of music and history they have been waiting decades for,” a news release on McCartney’s Web site announced Wednesday.
