Red Hot Chili Peppers to rock Tel Aviv

    Veteran rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers will perform in Israel a decade after they cancelled a gig because of concerns about terrorism.

    The California-based band will sing in Tel Aviv a week before Rosh Hashanah as one of the stops on their world tour.

    Tickets for the concert at Yarkon Park are expected to cost nearly £70.

    With ten albums under their belt, the Chilis are one of the most successful bands of all time.

    They were at the peak of their fame in 2001 when they pulled out of a scheduled performance in the wake of two suicide bombings in one week. One of the attacks, at the Sbarro pizza restaurant in central Jerusalem, saw 15 people killed; the second, in Haifa, killed 20.

    Two of the band's albums were recorded with guitarist Hillel Slovak, who was born in Haifa and whose mother was a Holocaust survivor. He died of a heroin overdose in 1988 as the band began making its name.
