The Jerusalem Post reports that concert promoter Marcel Avram is holding a press conference in Tel Aviv June 9 to announce Bon Jovi’s first concert in Israel. The publication says the show is expected to take place at Hayarkon Park.

Guess we’ll have to wait and see if Bon Jovi books any U.S. dates. For now, fans can catch Jon Bon Jovi playing a private performance at B.B. King’s in New York as part of a Runaway Tours package July 17-19.  

A fan club presale for Abu Dhabi begins June 8 at 12 p.m. local time. Kuala Lumpur’s presale begins June 9 at 10 a.m. local time. General onsales are scheduled June 10.
