JERUSALEM (JTA) — Lady Gaga will go ahead with her Tel Aviv concert date as planned, despite cancellations by other high-profile performers.

The American pop star’s management announced that the concert scheduled for Sept. 13 is still on, Israeli media reported Sunday.

The date for the concert in Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park, part of her “artRave: The ARTPOP Ball” international tour, is listed on Lady Gaga’s official website.

Tickets remain on sale and tens of thousands of Israeli fans are expected to attend.

Neil Young, The Backstreet Boys,  America, and Lana Del Rey are among the stars who cancelled performances this summer due to Israel’s conflict with Gaza.

She performed in Tel Aviv in August 2009, despite attempts by the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement to have her cancel.
