JNS.org – The American rock band Bon Jovi signed a contract in Germany that officially commits it to perform in Israel on Oct. 3, the concert’s producers announced at a press conference. The move marks the latest defeat for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement activists seeking to convince musicians not to perform in the Jewish state.

Bon Jovi’s performance in Israel for the final show of its Asian concert tour is the result of an effort by Guy Besser and Shay Mor Yosef of BlueStone Productions, in cooperation with promoter Marcel Avram, according to Yedioth Ahronoth.

Additionally, though a final contract has not yet been signed, hip-hop artist Pharrell Williams—most recently known for his hit song “Happy”—is scheduled to perform at Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park in September.
