Let Robbie Williams Entertain Israel

British singer Robbie Williams is coming to Israel in June 2023 to perform.

The UK pop star is performing at the beginning of June in Yarkon Park in Tel Aviv as part of the music festival – Summer In The City.

The festival is due to be held 31 May to 1 June 2023 and Williams will be headlining the festival.

Fellow Brit Sam Smith and US rapper Machine Gun Kelly are also performing in the planned two-day music festival.

Robbie Williams last performed in Tel Aviv in May 2015, in front of an audience of almost 40,000 people.

Williams was in the popular British boy band Take That, he later embarked on a very successful solo career after feuding with the other band members.  He has sold more than 75 million albums in his music career.  Angels is his most popular song to date.

Israel has for years been confronting a campaign by Palestinians calling for boycotts, divestment and sanctions. Some artists, like Lorde, have pulled out after pressure from boycott campaigners, while others have still decided to perform.

A number of big name acts have cancelled planned concerts in Israel in recent months.  Both Celine Dion and Justin Bieber have cancelled concerts in Israel due to their mental and physical health.

Justin Bieber was supposed to perform in Tel Aviv in September but cancelled due to his physical health.

In November, the Red Hot Chilli Peppers also cancelled their show in 2023 due to scheduling issues.
