Justin Bieber to perform in Israel


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Teen pop star Justin Bieber will perform a concert in Tel Aviv.

Bieber, who recently swept the American Music Awards — winning artist of the year, favorite pop/rock album, breakthrough artist and favorite male pop artist — will perform April 14 in Yarkon Park, Yediot Achronot reported.

The concert, part of Bieber’s "My World Tour," was booked following negotiations with seven Israeli producers. Producer Marcel Avraham, who brought Elton John, Rod Stewart, Metallica and Leonard Cohen to Israel, has been chosen to handle the concert, the newspaper reported. 

Some 60,000 fans are expected to attend the Canadian teen idol’s concert. The cost to produce the show has been placed at more than $1.5 million.

A Facebook page called "Justin Bieber fans in Israel" had 11,537 fans as of Sunday.
