Paul McCartney set for Israel show
He'll play Tel Aviv next month
Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney is reportedly set to play a show in Tel Aviv, more than 40 years after The Beatles were banned entry to the country.
McCartney was scheduled to play Tel Aviv earlier this year, but the show was cancelled, and the show is now slated for September 25,
Israel refused to issue entry permits to The Beatles in 1965 after officials decided the lyrical content of their music could corrupt young people there.
Despite reports in the Israeli news of the show, McCartney’s publicist Stuart Bell told the Associated Press that nothing’s yet been officially confirmed.
