#BDS_Fail Rolling Stones to gather in Israel

39 years almost to the date that I saw them at Willard's rat hole (the old Boston Garden), the Rolling Stones are coming to Israel.
According to Yediot Aharonoth, the legendary band is in discussing the show with Israeli promoters Marcel Avraham and Gadi Oron, and apparently will hold the performance after the group's 2014 European tour sometime in late May or early June.
The Rolling Stones have reportedly been offered $4.5 million for the show, which is thought to be the largest amount ever offered to an artist to play in Israel. Tickets are expected to cost around 400 shekels ($113).
The band has been one of the most influential rock groups; it was formed in 1962 and has released 25 studio albums.
Reports of the upcoming concert cautiously note that 2013 rumors that the band was planning a performance in Israel for the nation's 65th anniversary turned out to be false, disappointing fans.
If the concert materializes, it will be one of the biggest failures of the boycott calls urging international artists not to perform in Israel. Last November, it was reported that several top musicians were planning 2014 shows in Israel, including Justin Timberlake and Beyonce.
JPost is reporting that the concert will take place on June 10.
