[UPDATE / March 18] Rolling Stones call off tour in Autralia and New Zealand after L'Wren Scott death – no word on whether the cancellations will affect the Israel concert dates.

It’s happening! The meetings between the Rolling Stones’ people and the Israeli producer people have resulted in a concert date for this summer, The Jerusalem Post reports. Israelis will be able to rock out with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and co. June 10th at Ramat Gan Stadium.

The Stones were offered $4.5 million for the show, the largest amount ever offered to any artist to play Israel.

Other big names heading to the Holy Land this year include Neil Young, Justin Timberlake, the other Justin (by which we mean Bieber, of course), and Lady Gaga.
