The Rolling Stones’ June 4 concert in Tel Aviv still hasn’t sold out, but within minutes of the announcement of a Backstreet Boys concert on July 29, all the tickets were snapped up.
True, the 1990s American boy band is performing in the 8,000-seat Ra’anana ampitheater, compared with the more than 100,000 spaces available in Yarkon Park where the Stones will be playing.
Backstreet Boys tickets were also significantly cheaper, starting at NIS 269 for tickets on the grass, and ranging up to NIS 700 and NIS 995 for seats in the grandstand. Stones tickets are a lot pricier.
The Boys, Howie Dorough, A.J. McLean, Brian Littrell, Nick Carter and Kevin Richardson, are celebrating 21 years together with a world tour, and recently released a new album, “In A World Like This.”
Pop star Avril Lavigne is also joining them during the North American part of the tour.
Producer Guy Besser told “Good Evening with Guy Pines” that they may be able to move the concert to a larger space, or add another concert. Meanwhile, there are some tickets still available on the Yad2 classified ads website.
