One of the best-selling music artists of all time to wrap up 2017 world tour with show in Yarkon Park in June

British rock star Rod Stewart announced Tuesday that he will wrap up his 2017 world tour with a show in Tel Aviv.

The performance is scheduled for June 14, 2017, at Yarkon Park in Tel Aviv, and will be the final performance of Stewart’s “Hits” tour.

The rocker also recorded a special video message for his Israeli fans, promising “a splendid night of fantastic music.”

“This is Rod Stewart here and I shall be coming to Tel Aviv on June 14, playing at Hayarkon Park,” he says in the clip uploaded to Facebook. “So don’t miss it, it’s going to be a splendid night of fantastic music where you’ll hear everything you want to hear. June 14, Tel Aviv. Don’t miss it.”

Stewart, who turned 72 last week, has played in Israel twice before, in 2010 and in 1983, at the height of his career.

His official website has yet to list the Israel show, but tickets went on sale on the Leean ticket agency’s website on Tuesday, ranging in price from NIS 295 ($77) to NIS to 750 ($197).

The concert’s promoter said fans can expect to hear some of Stewart’s best-loved hits from his four-decade career, including “You Wear it Well,” “Baby Jane,” “Sailing” and “Have I Told You Lately.”

The legendary rocker got his start in the ’60s, performing with the Dimensions, the Jeff Beck Group, and the Faces. Stewart released his first solo album in 1969, going on to see success with his 1970s and 1980s releases.

With more than a dozen Grammy nominations to his name, Stewart is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold over 100 million records worldwide.

Last year, Stewart was knighted by Prince Charles for his contribution to music.
