Mccartney To Play In Israel?
The Fab Four were due to play a concert in the Middle Eastern region in 1965, but they were banished after the then-government refused to grant the necessary permits over fears their music would corrupt Israeli youths.
Officials revoked the banning order earlier this year (08) and now MCCartney is reportedly set to perform in front of 250,000 fans in the capital Tel Aviv in September (08).
A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "Paul is desperate to put Israel on the map of places he has performed."
The gig is said to be part of the country's 60th anniversary celebrations to mark its founding in 1948.
