Amidst a storm of applause and cheers from Kuwaiti fans, the star opened her concert by saying "Wahshtouni!" (I missed you) to her audience, before singing a series of her well-known songs, starting with Ah Ya Lail.

The concert marked the singer's return after her recent health crisis, which delayed the concert that was originally planned for late-October 2022.

The singer had alleged that she was forcibly taken to a mental health facility by her brother Mohamed. The public Prosecution launched an investigation into the allegations while the media latched onto the controversy, dissecting the singer's personal life and statements by family members.

According to Kuwaiti press promoting the show, she was discharged from the hospital where she received 21 days of treatment in November

She appeared in Kuwait's Arena healthy and filled with creative enthusiasm.

Sherine shot to fame in 2002 when releasing album Tamer & Sherine. She instantly became one of the top female voices in Egypt and the Arab world with over a dozen of successful albums and multiple TV and cinema credits.

In December 2022, Spotify listed Sherine Abdel-Wahab as the most-streamed Egyptian female artist globally, and fourth most-streamed Arab female artists globally, after Lebanese stars Nancy Ajram, Fairuz and Elissa, respectively.
