Veteran rockers are officially booked to perform at Tel Aviv’s Park Hayarkon on June 4.

After months – even years – of speculation, Israelis can finally get some satisfaction. The Rolling Stones are officially booked to perform on June 4 at Park Hayarkon in Tel Aviv.

Nobody was more satisfied than promoter Shuki Weiss, who announced the long-coveted show Tuesday morning in Tel Aviv. The announcement came days after the suicide of vocalist Mick Jagger’s partner, fashion designer L’Wren Scott, which forced the cancellation of seven Stones’ Australian and New Zealand shows as part of their ’14 on Fire’ tour.

“This is a historic and very meaningful visit,” said Weiss. “In these days when we hear calls for boycotts from around the world, it’s not taken for granted that a band of this magnitude will come to Israel.”
