After the rumor and reports it's official: the Rolling Stones are coming to Israel for a one-night only performance.

The British rock band will take to the stage on June 4 as part of the "14 on Fire" world tour.

Tickets officially go on sale for the Tel Aviv show at 9 A.M. on March 30, but customers of the cell phone company Pelephone can get in early during a presale that starts March 27 at 9 A.M.

The legendary rock group fronted by Mick Jagger kicked off its tour in Abu Dhabi on February 21. The Stones then set off across Asia and Australia, before postponing some scheduled Australian and New Zealand shows following the death of Jagger's longtime girlfriend, fashion designer L'Wren Scott.

The Eventim ticket office officially announced the Israel show on Tuesday. However, as of Tuesday morning it did not appear on the Stones' official website under its tour schedule.

Promoter Shuki Weiss, who has reportedly said in the past that he would retire after bringing the Stones to Israel, beat other promoters to the punch by guaranteeing the rock legends an astronomical sum of $6.7 million for this one performance, according to a report by Israel's Channel 2.

Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood are expected to paint Israel's vibrant city "like a rainbow."
