Legendary rock band Bon Jovi is set to rock Israel, most likely this autumn, after more than 30 years together.

BlueStone Productions, which has recently brought artists such as OneRepublic, Rihanna and Lady Gaga to Israel, will organize the show, likely to be held in Tel Aviv's HaYarkon Park in October. Information regarding costs and ticket sales will be offered on Tuesday by the BlueStone team.

Bon Jovi held talks to perform in Israel in 2010 to promote their then-new album "The Cycle," but plans ultimately fell through.

Bon Jovi, named after lead singer Jon Bon Jovi, was founded in 1983 and has received several Grammy and Billboard awards, among many others.

The band has released 10 studio albums, selling more than 40 million copies in the U.S. alone, and around 120 million copies worldwide.

In 2014, the band ranked #13 in Forbes' annual "World's Most Powerful Celebrities" rankings, earning $82 million after selling out arenas all over the world during their "What About Now" tour.
