Alan Parsons will return to Israel to perform with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra following the release of a new solo album next month titled “The Secret.”

Parsons' performance in Israel is part of his 70th birthday tour and will mark his third visit to the country in recent years following shows in 2015 and 2017. The British musician is slated to perform a number of his greatest hits in Israel, including “Eye in the Sky” and “Old and Wise.”

Parsons will appear in the Charles Bronfman Auditorium in Tel Aviv on June 4. Ticket prices will range from 255 shekels ($70) to 995 shekels.

In the 1960s, Parsons began working as a sound engineer in the Abbey Road Studios in London, where he worked on the Beatles’ “Abbey Road” album. Parsons also worked as an audio engineer for Pink Floyd’s’ “Dark Side of the Moon,” which got him his first Grammy nomination.

The London native began his Alan Parsons Project in 1975 along with Scottish musician Eric Woolfson. The group’s debut album, "Tales of Mystery and Imagination," was released in 1976 and was based on poems and horror stories written by Edgar Alan Poe. The group’s second album, “I Robot,” was released in 1977 and was inspired by science fiction writer Isaac Asimov and his robot stories.

The project ended in 1990, and Eric Woolfson later died in 2009. The group’s last studio album "The Silican Defence" was released in 2014.
