|Paul can't wait to play in Israel|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Wednesday, 08/27/08 3:17 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
On his official website today, Paul McCartney has made the announcement of his upcoming performance in Israel official, calling it his "Friendship First" concert.
Paul said, "I've heard so many great things about Tel Aviv and Israel, but hearing is one thing and experiencing it for yourself is another. We are planning to have a great time and a great evening. We can't wait to get out there and rock."
Earlier this year, Israel's ambassador to Britain, Ron Prosor, apologised to The Beatles during a trip to Liverpool for the "misunderstanding" that caused the Beatle's visit to Israel in 1965 to be cancelled. In a letter he wrote, "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."
Paul's gig in Tel Aviv, Israel, will take place on Thursday, September 25. Check our What Goes On Beatles Events Calendar frequently for concert info updates.
