Egyptian megastar Amr Diab
Egyptian pop stars Amr Diab, Mohamed Hamaki, Angham and Tamer Ashour are scheduled to perform in Saudi Arabia next week as part of the kingdom's ongoing celebrations to mark its 90th national day.
The series of events taking place amid easing COVID-19 preventive measure will host Angham and Tamer Ashour on 24 September and Hamaki on 25 September at Jeddah's King Abdullah Sports City that will conclude its rich prrogramme with Diab on 26 September.
In Jeddah and other cities like Riyadh and Dammam, many Arab singers will perform, including Emirati Ahlam, Iraq's Majed Al-Mohandess, Saudi Rabeh Sager, Rashid Al-Majid and Aseel Abu Bakr.
Diab released two trending video clips in August, Ya Baladna Ya Helwa (O' Our Beautiful Country) and Amaken El-Saher (Places of Nightlife), in addition to a few other songs shot the beach.
Hamaki has trended with Howa Dah Habibi (This is my Beloved), while Angham has recently made a successful summer single, Bahebak W-Bartahlak (I Love You and I Feel You) after Tamer Ashour released Bayaa (Selling Out), which garnered five million views on the YouTube channel of its Saudi lyricist Turki Al-Sheikh.
The Saudi concerts are organised by Entertainment Authority, under the helm of Al-Sheikh, with strict safety measures to avoid the spreading of the virus.
Saudi Arabia, almost halting Muslims' pilgrimage from abroad this year, has reported over 320,827 cases of coronavirus with over 4,000 deaths.
