Lady Gaga's Israel show going ahead

Lady Gaga has confirmed she is going ahead with her show in Israel despite the trouble in the region.

Other acts have called off concerts in the war-torn country due to the ongoing conflict, but Gaga has revealed she is not pulling the plug on her planned gig in Tel Aviv next week.

The Applause singer has released a video online titled Lady Gaga's Message For Israel, in which she says: "Shalom, this is Lady Gaga. I'm so excited to perform my new tour in Tel Aviv. I'll see you soon Israel, September 13th."

The star's management had previously insisted that she would still take to the stage at Hayarkon Park, Yehoshua Gardens, for her ArtRave: The Artpop Ball show.

Music acts who have cancelled shows in the region due to security concerns include The Backstreet Boys, Lana Del Rey and Neil Young.

Gaga, 28, previously performed in Israel in 2009.
