Five years after causing a stir while visiting the country, Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber is coming back to Israel.
The one-time teen heartthrob, now a bit older but still selling records, will perform on May 3 at Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park venue, according to the singer’s website.
Bieber announced the world tour in support of his record “Purpose” earlier this week, but the Israel date was only added Thursday.
Bieber, one of the world’s most famous pop stars, last performed in Israel in 2011 when he was 17.
His visit was marred by clashes with the paparazzi and reports he failed to show up for a meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Israeli media had previously reported that Bieber would perform in Israel in May, but without giving a specific date.
According to the Ynet news website, tickets will go on sale Thursday at 8 p.m. on the Leann ticket-sale website for members of Bieber’s fan club. Tickets for the general public will go on sale Saturday.
