According to this link on Jeff Pulver’s blog and this link on Ynet (an Israeli online newspaper – link is in Hebrew) the prices for the Jerusalem ROCKS! event I’ve previously mentioned, are now down due to demand from the people (mostly young people).
The prices are now 249 NIS for a place on the grass and 229 NIS for a place in the balcony (previous prices were 360 and 306 respectively). That’s a decrease of 25%-30% (depending on the ticket type).
The official blogs are here (Hebrew) and here (English).
The lineup is very extensive and for this price its a really good bargain on top of the fact that these are going to be great shows! Some of the line up include: The Black Eyed Peas, Arrested Development, the original band from the movie “The Commitments” in addition to an israei line up of “Hadag Nachah”, Muki and more.
You can get the tickets online on hadran.co.il.
Jeff Pulver, one of the organizers of this event, is looking for some corporate sponsors for this event. Check out his blog post on the subject and contact him.
Jeff posted a couple of days ago that the tickets for the Jerusalem ROCKS! event are on sale at Hadran.co.il.
Go here to read more about Jerusalem ROCKS! I also wrote a little bit about Jerusalem ROCKS! here.
Jeff is looking for bloggers from both Israel and around the world who would like to cover and/or promote the show. If you are interested Email to firstname.lastname@example.org and introduce yourself.
I’ve corresponded a little bit with Jeff about why he was doing this Event and he told me that he wanted to do something that no one did for almost 20 years. Also he wanted that Israeli people will just have fun.
At first I thought there should be something more to this than just fun, but then it hit me. Fun is something that is generally underestimated and undervalued specifically in our region of the world.
Such a show with performers in such caliber all in one place and in Jerusalem on top of all is something that is really awesome.
So… just go there and have fun. Have fun without worrying about the mundane things in life that are usually in your head. Clear your mind and just absorb the fun (there is going to be lots of it!)
Last Thursday I went to Jeff Pulver‘s party for Israeli Facebook users in the Tel Aviv Harbor.
All in all it was very fun and the mood was great. We also discovered that Israelis don’t drink that much even in an almost open bar – Jeff had to take a mic and rush us all into the bar to get to the minimum he told the bar he would pay for :-)
I’d like to thank Jeff for a very nice and casual party. Thanks Jeff!
During the party, Jeff told us about Jerusalem Rocks, an event he co-organizes on September 9th in Jerusalem which will bring the Black Eyed Pees back to Israel, the original band from the Movie the Commitments as well as “Hadag Nachash” (Israeli band) and others Israeli bands.
The concert is NOT for profit (it’s for Peace and fun) and every single dime that will be earned on top of the expenses will go back to a pool to be used next year for the same event.
In addition to that 4,000 seats will be given to children around Israel that usually can’t afford to go to such concerts.
All in all, this is a good concert for a good cause organized by a good man!
Tickets sales should start this week (or so I’m told) so if you are an Israeli go buy the tickets, if you are not an Israeli and you might be in Israel on September 9th buy it as well!
If you can’t come, spread the word to everyone you know!
