A show incorporating current affairs, entertainment and acting, accompanied by a band, and two singers/ dancers.
In this show, managed by the musician David Kriboshe, Gaon performs his greatest hits including “Here I am” (Hineni Kan), “The Last War” (Hamilchama Ha’achrona), “Way to Go” (Kol Hakavod), “Roza”, “There is a Place”( Yesh Makom) in addition to new great songs. In between songs, Gaon tells the audience about his personal life and his long career stories which relate to these songs.
Yehoram Gaon is considered one of the major proponents of the Israeli culture and entertainment worlds. As Israel’s all time most popular singer, gifted actor, TV and radio host, writer, poet and publicist, Gaon has a long list of performances on stage and screen in both movies and on television. He has produced and directed plays and movies and written and edited books on Israeli culture and tradition.
Gaon’s singing career has yielded 7 solo shows, over 70 long-playing records and countless special performances. His songs have become the cornerstone of the Israeli music and it was only natural that Gaon was chosen by the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin to be the Representative Israeli Singer at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo in 1994.
There he sang, at Rabin’s request, the inspirational “The Last War”.
In 2004, Yehoram Gaon was awarded the prestigious Israel Prize for his contribution to Culture and Hebrew Song.
