Hundreds of Saudis attended a concert in Riyadh, the first evening of singing in the Saudi capital, since the outbreak of the Corona virus in the Kingdom at the beginning of last year.
Before the epidemic, concerts were making their way in Riyadh after decades of ban, with the efforts and efforts of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, to present a modern and different image of society.
Saudis and foreigners sat around tables in the hall of a luxury hotel in Riyadh, watching with enthusiasm the evening revived by the Syrian artist Asala and the Kuwaiti singer Nabil Shuail.
A young Saudi woman said, “I came from the Eastern Province with my mother and my relatives to see the return of the parties, and thank God they started with authenticity, because I am one of her biggest fans.”
As a Kuwaiti tourist said, “Two years have passed since we came here. We are happy to come from Kuwait to attend the party.”
The Riyadh concert was preceded by a performance by Italian Andrea Bocelli in Al-Ula Governorate last April.
Before the spread of the virus, the Kingdom’s authorities held concerts for international bands and artists, which was unimaginable before, including the American Janet Jackson, rapper 50 Cent, and the South Korean pop band BTS.
