The Rolling Stones arrived in Israel two days before their scheduled Tel Aviv concert.

The band, making its concert debut in Israel, landed in Israel on Monday and will play Yarkon Park on Wednesday evening at the close of the Shavuot holiday. The concert is part of the Stones’ “ON FIRE 14″ European tour.

Frontman Mick Jagger reportedly had a four-hour dinner at a Tel Aviv restaurant shortly after landing and returned to his hotel room after 2 a.m., according to the Times of Israel.

Over the weekend, the Stones said they would push the concert’s start time to 9:15 to enable religiously observant concert-goers to attend. The Tel Aviv municipality agreed to extend the 11 p.m. curfew on public performances.
