Canadian singer Neil Young, of the former Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young rock group of the late 60s, will perform with his Crazy Horse band in Tel Aviv this July, his first performance in Israel since 1995.
The announcement by an Israeli producer comes a week after a report, quoting Israeli producers, that the Rolling Stones are planning a gig in Israel this year.
Young is an environmental activist but has not used his stardom to promote political platforms, which is bad news for the Boycott Israel movement that lately has failed to stop entertainers from performing in Israel.
Young, now 68 years old, moved to California in 1966 after starting out his career as a performer in Canada. He is considered one of the greatest rock songwriters and performers.
