Justin Timberlake to make Israeli debut in Tel Aviv

Pop star arriving this summer as part of his international tour.

For the first time in his chart-topping career, Justin Timberlake is coming to Israel.

The pop star has announced a concert for Tel Aviv’s 50,000-seat Park Hayarkon on May 28 as part of his 20/20 Experience World Tour. According to producer Udi Applebaum, Timberlake’s set will last 90 minutes and include songs both old and new.

“Timberlake embodies the classic high-gloss entertainer of decades past, but with modern edginess,” praises a recent review of his tour. “[He] sang in a sweet, effortless falsetto, danced with extraordinary precision and skill, and played a couple of songs on a white grand piano.”

Timberlake’s concert kicks off a busy summer for Park Hayarkon that includes a first-ever concert by The Rolling Stones (June 4), the Pixies (June 28) and Neil Young and his band Crazy Horse (July 17). The urban arena has played host to a number of famous musicians including Elton John, Rihanna and Paul McCartney.

Other international cities the 33-year-old music phenom will be visiting as part of his 20/20 Experience World Tour include Moscow, Copenhagen and London.
