The platinum-selling rocker appears to be heading back to the Holy Land this summer.

Jon Bon Jovi last touched down in Israel three years ago, rocking the socks off more than 50,000 adoring fans in Tel Aviv.

During that show, Bon Jovi declared, “We’re finally here. It took me long enough!” reported the Jerusalem Post.

Those who caught the show were treated to Bon Jovi classics like “It’s My Life,” “Livin’ on a Prayer,” and “Wanted Dead or Alive,” which have earned the New Jersey-bred rocker multiple platinum plaques since the 1980s.

By performing in the Jewish state, Bon Jovi joined other major stars such as Radiohead and Morrissey, who refuse to succumb to boycott demands from the virulently anti-Israel, terror-linked BDS movement.

News of Bon Jovi’s return broke because an online outlet briefly listed the concert date, before pulling it down to apparently comply with plans to delay the announcement until December.

This slip-up resulted in multiple Hebrew media reports that Bon Jovi will play Tel Aviv on July 25, 2019 as part of his “This House is Not For Sale” tour.

Bon Jovi’s Israeli publicist from his last visit did not deny the report when the Jerusalem Post reached out to her, responding that that “no more details [are] currently available.”

In what may have been a hint that the rocker is returning, Bon Jovi recently posted photos from the 2015 show on his Instagram account.
