It isn’t just Britney Spears who’s hanging out at the Western Wall this week.

Jersey Boy crooner Frankie Valli landed in Israel on Sunday, and has been traveling around Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, despite the intense July heat.

American pop star Britney Spears also arrived in Israel on Sunday ahead of her Monday performance at Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park, and headed straight to the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

At the Western Wall and the Western Wall tunnels, Spears was surrounded by paparazzi and security staff who tried to keep the fans at bay. Afterward, she was unable to make it to a dinner date with Netanyahu, his wife, Sara, and pediatric cancer patients from Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, the Ynet news site reported.

Valli managed to get around without being mobbed.

He and The Four Seasons will perform Tuesday at Tel Aviv’s Charles Bronfman Auditorium, their first time performing in Israel.

The band is known as the original “Jersey boys,” the musical group on whom the Broadway show and 2014 film by the same name were based.

Valli and the Four Seasons are known for their 1960s songs such as “Big Girls Don’t Cry, “Sherry” and “Walk Like a Man.”

Tickets are available at Eventim.
