After empowering, inspiring and impressing music fans for two and a half decades, pop icon Christina Aguilera is finally coming to Israel.
The American singer and songwriter, known for her vocal capabilities and for pioneering the use of feminist and pro-LGBTQ themes in pop music, will perform on August 10 at Live Park in Rishon Lezion before a crowd of up to 15,000.
The 42-year-old will come to the Jewish state as part of a tour marking 25 years since the beginning of her career.
Aguilera has been ranked by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 greatest singers of all time, by Forbes as the most successful artist of the first decade of the 21st century, and by Time as one of the 100 most influential people in the world.
Aguilera’s early career hits remain popular in Israel, where the audience of the country’s most popular music radio station Galgalatz selected her 2003 ballad “Beautiful” as the second-best song of the 2000s.
Along with other beloved hits such as “Genie in a Bottle” and “Hurt,” the five-time Grammy winner is set to captivate an Israeli audience for the first time.
Tickets, available here, will go for NIS 365 ($102) for a regular ticket, NIS 645 ($180) for Golden Ring B, and NIS 675 ($188) for Golden Ring A.
The show producer is Bluestone of Live Nation Israel.
