Since Hamas launched attacks on Israeli citizens in October 2023 and the subsequent Israeli military assaults on Gaza, international touring to this part of the world has pretty much ceased.

In more peaceful times, Israel was a popular stop, with Tel Aviv the main concert hub. The Menora Mivtachim Arena in the Yad Eliyahu neighbourhood, serves as the primary indoor facility, accommodating up to 12,000 fans. Owned by the city and operated by its Sports Palaces company, the venue boasts a cutting-edge audio-visual system, a 300sqm LED cube suspended above the central court, and an advanced TW Audio sound system with over 50 speakers, including B30 subwoofers.

In the capital, Jerusalem, the city-owned Pais Arena is an 11,000-capacity venue on six levels.

A new stadium complex, including a 5,000-capacity arena, is being built in Ashdod. Work started in 2023 and continues apace, according to reports.
