Lady Gaga has confirmed that she will still play a show in Israel next week.

The singer is scheduled to play in Tel Aviv on September 13, but there had been speculation she might cancel the gig due to conflict in the region. Artists including Cee Lo Green, Neil Young and the Backstreet Boys all recently pulled dates in Israel in response to the unrest between the country and Palestine.

However, Gaga has now released a 10-second video titled 'Lady Gaga's Message For Israel' which confirms the show will take place as scheduled. Click below to watch.

Next month, Gaga will release her duet album with Tony Bennett, titled 'Cheek To Cheek'. The LP, which is due for release on September 22, will feature many jazz standards including 'It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)', 'Sophisticated Lady', 'Lush Life' and the album's title track.

"'Cheek To Cheek' came out of a very organic friendship and relationship that Tony and I have built over the years and it truly was a collaborative effort," said Gaga in a statement. "It was important to Tony that this was a jazz record. I've been singing jazz since I was a child and really wanted to show the authentic side of the genre. We made an album of jazz classics, but it has a modern twist."

Gaga had previously worked with Bennett on his 2011 'Duets II' album, recording a version of 'The Lady Is A Tramp'.

In June, the pair made a surprise appearance at the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in New York City, giving students a short performance and masterclass.
