Bon Jovi will perform in Israel in the coming year, the band’s lead singer Jon Bon Jovi told Larry King on his talk show.

During an interview on CNN’s “Larry King Live,” Bon Jovi said the rock band would include Israel on its list of stops during its “The Circle” world tour in 2011. The group, which was at the height of its popularity in the 1980s, also will visit Greece for the first time.

Several high-profile musical artists have canceled shows in Israel in the past year, bowing to political pressure from pro-Palestinian groups.

Rod Stewart appeared at Ramat Gan Stadium in June. The rock band Deep Purple will return to Israel in May for two concerts, Ynet reported.
