Pop icon Tom Jones has announced that he will be performing in Israel this autumn.

The 73 - year - old Welsh singer is due to appear at the Nokia Stadium in Tel Aviv on October 26 in a one-off concert.

Meanwhile Eric Burdon, former lead singer of 60s rock band The Animals, has reversed his decision to cancel a gig in Israel.

The star was reported to have withdrawn from the show following a flood of what his management described as "threatening" emails from anti-Israel activists.

But, on Mr Burdon's website, the concert is listed as going ahead, and he will perform at the Zappa Shuni Amphitheater in Binyamina on Thursday.
