Uniting Arab icons for one huge celebration

by

To mark Saudi Arabia’s 90th National Day, the Kingdom is celebrating in a major way. For the first time since the coronavirus outbreak spread back in March, the nation will see a slew of concerts take place. From Jeddah to Riyadh, this month will see some of the region’s biggest stars take to the stage. 

The move comes just two months after lockdown restrictions were lifted across the nation. Kicking off the star-studded concert series is Emirati singer and Arab Idol judge Ahlam, who is set to hold a show in Jeddah’s King Abdullah Sports City on September 22.

Bahraini singer Rashed Al-Majed will perform the same day in Dammam alongside Saudi singer Asseel Abu Bakr. The next day Majid al-Muhandis will take to the stage at the King Fahad Cultural Center in Riyadh. In Jeddah, Abadi al-Johar and Dalia Mubarak will perform at King Abdullah Sports City. The next two days will see performances by Angham, Tamer Ashour and Rabih Saqer. 

To close it all off, Amr Diab will make his Saudi debut on September 26 at Jeddah’s King Abdullah Sports City.
