Lady Gaga will hold her Tel Aviv concert as planned, despite cancellations this summer by other high-profile performers.
The American pop star’s management announced that the concert, scheduled for Sept. 13, is still on, Israeli media reported Aug. 31. The date for the concert in Yarkon Park, part of her “artRave: The ARTPOP Ball” international tour, is listed on Lady Gaga’s website.
Tickets remain on sale and tens of thousands of Israeli fans are expected to attend.
Neil Young, the Backstreet Boys, America and Lana Del Rey are among the stars who canceled performances this summer due to Israel’s conflict with Gaza.
