Recently Amr Diab was forced to stop singing during his concert in Syria after an official from the company sponsoring his performance assaulted one of his fans. The singer was in shock when the official from Syria Tel began senselessly beating a fan who had managed to go on stage to personally greet Amr.
Amr became furious at the scene and ran to rescue his fan and demanded that the official be instantly removed from the scene or else he will not continue his performance. Amr stressed that Art is noble message to everyone and he is against all forms of violence of all levels. He added that despite the fact that his performance in Syria was a charity event for the handicapped, but the incident that occurred in front of him made him go in rage leading him to threaten pulling out and stop his concert. –Albawaba.com
