Depeche Mode finally takes stage in Israel

JERUSALEM (JTA) — The British pop band Depeche Mode opened its world tour in Israel nearly three years after canceling a concert there due to the Second Lebanon War.

Some 50,000 concert-goers saw the band, which was at its most popular in the 1980s, during its sold-out performance at the Ramat Gan Stadium on Sunday night. 

Meanwhile, Madonna announced that she will visit Israel in October as part of her Sticky and Sweet Tour. It is speculated that she will remain in Israel over Yom Kippur.
