Israeli pop star Noa Kirel will perform at New York City’s Madison Square Garden next June, local media reported on Tuesday.
According to the reports, Kirel’s team has paid a deposit to hold the venue for a show on June 30, 2024.
“It’s time to give an international career a real shot, Noa and her team believe they can make this a success,” Ynet cited a source as saying.
Kirel, fresh off her third-place finish at the 2023 Eurovision competition, recently sold out Yarkon Park, the country’s largest entertainment venue, in less than five hours.
The Sept. 21 concert at the outdoor venue in north Tel Aviv comes after May’s Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool. There, Kirel performed her hit song “Unicorn,” which earned the 22-year-old IDF veteran from the central Israeli city of Ra’anana the best finish for Israel since Netta took the top prize in 2018.
Around 60,000 tickets were allocated for the Yarkon Park performance, and Kirel’s representatives are looking into the possibility of adding another show on Sept. 23.
