Red Hot Chili Peppers to play Tel Aviv


JERUSALEM (JTA) — The Red Hot Chili Peppers inked a deal to perform in Israel a decade after the rock band canceled a performance at the last minute.

The band reportedly is set to perform in Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park in September as part of a world tour to promote its 10th album. Ticket prices have been set at $105.

Red Hot Chili Peppers canceled a performance in Tel Aviv in 2001 due to the security situation.

The band’s first guitarist, Hillel Slovak, who died of a heroin overdose in 1988, was an Israeli who moved to the United States as a child.
