An Israeli TV station broadcast again at the weekend to say that talks are underway to get the Red Hot Chili Peppers to play Israel next summer. Apparently two dates are under consideration for the 2012 concerts with Tel Aviv considered to be the most likely place for the concerts to be held.
Article Summary: Shuki Weiss (who was the producer behind the Chili’s last minute cancelled concert in Yarkon Park, Tel Aviv back in 2001), is also behind the latest bid to get RHCP back to Israel and although nothing is definite yet, it seems that there is a possibility the band will play Israel next summer. There are concerns about the cost of getting the Red Hot Chili Peppers out to Israel but the two dates, amount of willing fans to buy tickets and possible sponsorship should overcome that making the concerts feasible.
The news was featured on Israeli Entertainment News yesterday (Sunday 13th November 2011):
