Popular indie folk singer Regina Spektor is scheduled to return to Israel in the summer of 2013 for a performance at the Caesarea amphitheater.

The Russian-born New Yorker will hold a single concert on August 24 at the open-air venue, a refurbished Roman theater dating back to the first century CE.

In 2007, Spektor gave two sellout performances at the Barby club in Tel Aviv and maintains a strong fan base in Israel.

President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle are both fans of the Jewish singer, and she has twice been invited to perform for the US leader.

Spektor will come to Israel as part of a world tour that includes stops in Britain, Hungary, Sweden, and Germany.

She gave a nod to her Moscow roots with a 2004 album entitled “Soviet Kitsch.”

The tour is promoting Spektor’s latest album “What We Saw From The Cheap Seats,” which was released last year.

In somewhat ironic contrast to the album’s title, when tickets become available, the first 300 will go for NIS 199 ($55). Remaining tickets will cost up to NIS 300 ($84).
