#BDSFail (epic): The sun will rise in Binyamina after all

The Animals' Eric Burdon is going to follow in Alicia Keys' footsteps. Contrary to what I reported this morning, it was announced this afternoon that Burdon will come to Israel after all (Hat Tip: Findalis).
Burdon, the former lead singer of ’60s British band The Animals, last week canceled an August 1 concert in Binyamina because he had been receiving daily threatening emails, his manager said.
However, on Monday the concert was back up on Burdon’s website and was again listed among the concerts at the Zappa Shuni Amphitheater in Binyamina. No reason was given for the cancellation of the cancellation.
Burdon, whose band’s decades-spanning career including hits such as “The House of the Rising Sun,” “We Gotta Get Out Of This Place,” “It’s My Life,” and “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood,” is once again scheduled to perform alongside Israeli legendary band T-Slam, as per the original plan.
August 1 is this Thursday. Unfortunately, yours truly is still in mourning for Dad so going is not an option....

But it IS unusual to be loved by everyone. Tom Jones is also coming to Israel
According to the Israeli media, the 73-year-old vocal powerhouse will be thrilling his Israeli fans on October 26 at the Nokia Stadium in Tel Aviv. Ticket prices will apparently range from NIS 250-1,800. 
Jones will reportedly be joined on stage by a seven-strong musical ensemble, including a brass section and two singers. 

Born in Wales, Jones has sold over 100 million records. He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2006 for “services to music.”  His hits include such greats as It’s Not Unusual, What's New Pussycat?, Green, Green Grass of Home, and Delilah. 
 Those tickets are a little pricey.... Hmmm.
