The Jerusalem Post reports: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame guitarist Carlos Santana has announced a performance with his band at Tel Aviv’s Hayarkon Park on July 30.
Santana, who rose to fame after an incendiary performance at the Woodstock Festival in 1969, last appeared in Israel in 1987. A return show in 2010 was canceled due to scheduling conflicts, although the BDS Movement attempted to take credit for it.
“Carlos Santana is a citizen of the world and he plays his music and spreads his message of love, light and peace wherever he goes,” said Santana manager Michael Vrionis in a press release. “Carlos believes the world should have no borders so he is not detoured or discouraged to play anywhere on this planet. We look forward to performing in Israel this summer.”
Tickets to the show, promoted by Shuki Weiss and Mario Mendrzycki, will go on sale Friday at eventim.co.il.
