British music legend Elton John is no stranger to Israel – he’s delighted his fans by playing here 3 times before. His 26 May concert in Ganei Yehoshua – Park Hayarkon in Tel Aviv is sure to be a sold-out success. In the past, he has stood up to extremists who lobbied him to boycott his Israeli concert, saying “”Musicians spread love and peace, and bring people together. That’s what we do. We don’t cherry-pick our conscience.” Which makes us love him even more.
