Paul McCartney will perform in Israel

Paul McCartney will perform in Israel in September and the final details are being worked out for the multi-million-dollar show, which would mark his first-ever appearance in the Holy Land. Government officials prevented The Beatles from playing there in 1965, saying the band “didn’t stand on a high cultural and artistic level and had a bad influence over youth.” Earlier this year, the Israeli ambassador to Britain, Ron Prosor, apologized to the Fab Four, saying, in part, “There is no doubt that it was a great missed opportunity to prevent people like you, who shaped the minds of the generation, to come to Israel and perform.” If the show becomes a reality, it will be held in Tel Aviv on either the 18th or 25th of September. A spokesman for McCartney tells us he has no knowledge of plans for a concert there.
