The summer solstice has arrived and, with it, the summer concert season.
Crooner Tom Jones returns to Tel Aviv for the third time this Wednesday, June 28, to the city’s Menora Mivtachim stadium.
Then there’s the long-awaited Britney Spears show on Monday, July 3, at Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park.
Spears will be performing a one-night show in the park as part of her upcoming world tour. Local music producers have been working to bring Spears to Israel since last year, and the performance is set to cost more than $2 million.
Local fans are clearly pumped for the arrival of the pop star, who already sent a message via Twitter to celebrity journalist, Guy Pines.
“Tel Aviv here I come!! Can’t wait to take the stage at Park Hayarkon on July 3rd! Hey @therealguypines, see you there!!” wrote Spears on Twitter.

Besides El Al flight attendants and their spoof on Spears’ “Toxic” — perhaps inspired by flight attendants on AsiaAir and Thailand’s low-cost Nok Air — local Spears fans are organizing themselves for this long-awaited night.
In order to avoid lengthy traffic jams in and out of the park before and after the concert, they’ve ordered the Britney Bus, a private coach bus organized by the FanZone company that picks up passengers throughout the country, deposits them at the concert and takes them home afterwards.
They all wanna go, right?
