Australian supergroup The Dead Daisies stopped over in Tel Aviv on their return to Sydney for a show after their recent UK tour.
During the visit to the Holy Land, the members and crew of The Dead Daisies visited the beaches of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Masada and The Dead Sea to create a video diary of the visit by photographer Katarina Benzova.
The Dead Daisies performed their first ever show in Israel at The Barby Club on December 21 and received a rave review from the Jerusalem Post.
The show in Tel Aviv featured special guests with local artist Ninet Tayeb joining The Dead Daisies on stage for the encore performance of The Beatles’ ‘Helter Skelter’ and Orit and Tom from Israel’s HaYehudim jumping up for a cover of Free’s All Right Now’.
