Police close several roads in Tel Aviv due to congestion ahead of the Guns N’ Roses concert in Yarkon Park tonight.

“Due to traffic congestion, the Rokah interchange is closed to vehicular traffic,” police say. They also announce that the Ganei Yehoshua parking lot is closed.

The veteran rockers are kicking off their lengthy world tour with the Tel Aviv concert.

After heading to Europe for 15 concerts, the band — which includes Axl Rose, 61, Duff McKagan, 59, and Slash, 57 — will return to North America in August before wrapping things up in October in Vancouver.

The band last played in Israel in 2017.
