Kanye West will perform in Israel for the first time later this year, holding a concert at Ramat Gan Stadium on September 30.

The concert is being organized by Ran Rahav Communications. Tickets ranging from NIS 199 ($52) to 650 will go on sale on Wednesday.

This April, West, his wife Kim Kardashian and their daughter, North West, as well as Kardashian sister Khloe, landed in Israel for a private visit, following a trip to Armenia. North was baptized during the visit at Cathedral of St. James, an Armenian church in the Old City of Jerusalem.

In January reports emerged that Kardashian and her two sisters were planning to buy a Tel Aviv apartment worth $30 million.

West, no stranger to controversy, came under fire in 2013 for saying that “Black people don’t have the same level of connections as Jewish people.” He later retracted the comment, saying it was an “ignorant compliment.”
