For those of you who were wondering who the Rolling Stones would choose as the warm-up act for their June concert in Israel, the wait is over. Rami Fortis, Israel's punk rock pioneer, is the lucky musician to land the gig.

- Lana Del Rey joins Israel's summer concert list
- Rolling Stones 'so excited to be coming to Israel'
"To say that this is exciting is an understatement," Fortis said in a statement released by promoter Shuki Weiss.
"I'm playing it cool, but I'm trembling. I am almost the same age as them, and this band has accompanied me all my life and until today - I have no doubt that they are a huge soundtrack and source of inspiration for me."
The Stones will be playing their long-awaited show on June 4 as part of the "14 on Fire" world tour. It was reported that the British rock legends will get $6.7 million for performance.
