Iconic British alternative rock band Radiohead will perform for Israeli fans on July 19 at Tel Aviv's HaYarkon park, the band has confirmed.
A post to the official Radiohead Twitter account reads: "Radiohead will be playing at Park HaYarkon in Tel Aviv, Israel on Wed 19 July. Tickets on sale now."
This will be the group's fourth concert in the Jewish State.
The group played concerts in Israel in 1993, 1995, and 2000, and guitarist Johnny Greenwood is married to Israeli-born artist Sharona Katan.
Radiohead has sold more than 30 million albums since emerging in the heyday of alternative rock in the early 1990s.
The group, led by frontman Thom Yorke, catapulted into world fame with their 1992 single "Creep" followed by their debut album, "Pablo Honey", a year later.
But the band soon swapped guitar rock for more electronic and experimental sounds starting with 1997's influential album "OK Computer."
The group last July released its long-awaited ninth album after months of cryptic signals.
In one shift for Radiohead, the band released "Daydreaming" as well as the first single, "Burn the Witch," on streaming services including Spotify despite Yorke's long vehement criticism of the companies' compensation to artists.
