It seems like every time Matisyahu is in town, I run into him on Ben Yehuda street. Well this time is no different. Matisyahu is in Jerusalem with his wife and kid (Miniyahu) to celebrate Shavuot. Next Thursday he’ll be the opening act for Sting at Ramat Gan Stadium. Tickets are 300 NIS. And afterwards you get to see Sting in concert. I’m no fan of Sting but I welcome him to Israel regardless. I swear I thought saw a sign at a shop that said “Welcome to Israel! Big Discount for Brave Sting!”
But for those of you not so enamored of Sting, guess what? Matisyahu let me in on a little secret and we’re pleased to be the first to announce that he will be playing again on Saturday night in Tel Aviv at the Barbi (Kibbutz Glauyot 52 ,corner of Hertzel Street – phone: 035188123). Tickets will be available on Sunday and are set to cost around 150 NIS.
Michael is spending Shavuot with Harry and Ziva and so you can expect the requisite snarky comment very soon (he is currently in transit). Miniyahu was very animated and cute despite the heat. My how he’s grown since Jewlicious@TheBeach 2.0! Thanks to Mrs. Matisyahu for taking the photo. Probably the worst pic of me ever taken …
Happy Shavuot! Enjoy this video clip from YU.
