Paul McCartney is to play a gig in Tel Aviv in Israel, after a ban on the former Beatle performing in the state was lifted.

The band were banned from playing in 1965, with Israeli authorities concerned about their impact on the youth of the country.

McCartney will perform in the city on September 25, an echo of his June gig in Kiev in the Ukraine.

In a statement, the star said: “We can’t wait to get out there and rock. I’ve heard so many great things about Tel Aviv and Israel, but hearing is one thing and experiencing it for yourself is another.”

The Fireman, McCartney‘s electronic collaboration with Youth, are set to perform on Later With Jools Holland later this year.
