Aerosmith’s performance in Israel is the first installment of its farewell “Aero-Vederci Baby!” tour—marking 40 years of the group performing together—and is the second time the legendary Bostonian rock band has played at Hayarkon Park. The previous performance occurred in 1994 as part of the group’s “Get a Grip Tour.”

Concert organizers said more than 45,000 tickets have already been sold for this week’s show. During his stay in Israel, Tyler will visit Jerusalem, Masada and Eilat, Israel’s Mako TV news program reported.

While in Israel, Tyler is staying in the royal suite of Tel Aviv’s Dan Hotel—the same suite Justin Bieber stayed in when he performed at Hayarkon Park May 3. According to Israel’s Channel 2, Tyler requested a list of items in his room including unsweetened almond milk, organic goat milk, red wine, white wine and a coffee machine. Yedioth Ahronoth, meanwhile, reported the rocker requested 12 large pillows, peanut butter and to “empty the room of alcoholic beverages,” contradicting Channel 2’s report.
