Rolling Stones Really Coming to Israel this Time

The Rolling Stones will – or will not – perform in Israel in June, more than year after The Jewish PressPurim page announced a supposed gig, complete with Mick Jagger having an audience with President Shimon Peres.

The gag was clearly marked a prank and was an impossible tale that could be believed only by someone who just woke up from a 40-year-old coma.

Nevertheless, it was reported as fact, to the delight of fans of the Stones and to the chagrin of the Boycott Israel Movement. The Times of Israel noted that the spoof, published on Purim, was written in such a way that “even for the not-Jewishly aware, however, the fact that the article was illustrated with a blatantly photo-shopped image, ‘showing’ the Stones “holding” a large plaque bearing Israel’s state symbol, ought to have given the game away.”

Now the Hebrew language Yediot Acharonot is reporting that the Stones are negotiating for a $.5 million offer to play in Tel Aviv.

Purim is two months away, so the report may have some validity, especially it specifically names the promoters who are supposedly dickering with the Stones.

Full disclosure: I saw the Stones perform in Montreal in the 1970s when I was on the entertainment beat for a local tabloid. I almost caught lung cancer from the marijuana smoke that hardly left enough air for breathing in the Montreal Forum. I still suffer from tinnitus as a result of the on-stage noise.

But all that is worth if the Rolling Stones really do come to Israel this year and drive the Boycott Israel movement over the cliff.

  1. Agreed – this is the ONLY rock band left from the seventies worth their salt, and their popularity would indeed put a stick in the eye of the "boycott Israel group!" Saw them in, umm, 1970 I believe at the old Virginia Beach Dome and still have great memories (no maryjane that I remember!?) Would go to Israel to see the Land – and them if I could!

  2. Szepno j says:

    Much better band than KISS headed by Gene Weitz only child of survivors of the Holocaust who married a fading porno actress who has no respect but wears a cross every time she can- plus google her trashy sisters. lets hear if any of the Jewish members of KISS is helping support Israel financially……

    .5 Million? I am pretty sure the Stones wouldn't show up for a photo op for .5 Million, I heard 4.5 Million was the number

  5. John Kramer says:

    Are Mic Jagger and Kieth Richards jewish.

  6. John Kramer says:

    Are Mick Jagger and Kieth Richards jewish?

  7. Myriam Obadia says:

    Keith Richard, I've no idea, but Mick Jagger isn't

  8. Myriam Obadia says:

    Keith Richard, I've no idea, but Mick Jagger isn't

  9. John Kramer says:

    Myriam Obadia , Thank you.I am glad to have a smart one like you and I love you for that.

  10. Myriam Obadia says:

    John Kramer very nice compliment, but I'm far from sure I deserve it

  11. A communist coming to Israel get real Mick like waking up from a drug induced coma we don't even want him in America with his drug shooting up self!!

  12. Considering the times we live in; let them come and play, on the Temple Mount, perhaps that would blow the infidels from our Holy edifice…! O'h, never mind, whatever was I thinking? All those steps, at their age they wouldn't be able to make it!

  13. Max Eddy says:

    What America are U talking about?? The Rolling Stones are loved in America & play to Millions of Americans each time they tour. Most of the Stones live in America! America, Israel & the rest of the world are glad to have them!!

  14. Max Eddy says:

    Jagger..A Communist?? U better wake up from UR drug induced coma!!

  15. Paulita Gilberto says:

    Max Eddy: If you believe Hillary is a Marxist & I do, Mick is always talking up Hillary for President. He also eent to the London School of Economics which is always supect, but I'm sure he's a capitalist with hisown money. He and Keith are both ateists at best and if you beliee their spin, have great sympathy for the devil. I was a Stones fan in the early 60's, but the demonic stuff turned me off. After Brian Jones left, they weren't all that to me.

  16. Paulita Gilberto says:

    Sorry, I have a new keyboard because these sites always drop letters, but it wasn't the old keyboard. Some of these sites are much worse than others. Mck went/He & Keith are both/ etc.

  17. Paulita Gilberto says:

    They are atheists.

  18. Denis MacEoin says:

    If shooting up drugs can produce an über-fit human being like Sir Mick Jagger, now in his 70s, maybe we should all think of dong the same. Actually, he has a punishing fitness routine and almost certainly gave the drugs the old heave-ho many years ago.

  19. Ralph Zazula says:

    The whole world is Jewish when you're in love…

  20. I don't think the Stones are smoking that much those days, that's the past and anyway , let them play, so what …it is a good opportunity for the stones to get a kosher roll…

  21. Graham Stone says:

    We are on the way if the Stones play TA. If the Rolling Stones really do come to Israel this year it will be a blow to the boycott movements. Kol A'kovod!
