Clashes between fans and police at Amro Diab’s concert
The concert held by Egyptian singer Amro Diab during the Muslim Holiday Eid Al Adha witnessed chaos as hundreds of fans attempted to enter the concert by force without having tickets. Police officials struggled to keep the mob of people from entering the concert but with no avail.
The organizing company had announced that there will be only six thousand tickets for Amro’s first concert after the release of his latest album “Banadeek Ta’ala” (I’m calling you come), but in reality ten thousand people attended the concert leading to clashes between fans and the police securing the scene.
According to the internet website MBC.net, a reporter covering the event stated that it was obvious that concert was ill organized and there were mobs of people trying to force their way into the concert without having tickets and fought relentlessly with police forces and ended up breaking the barriers placed.
In addition to the clashes that took place, reporters were not allowed to take pictures of the event despite a previous agreement with the organizers of the event, leading the reporters to be outraged.
During the concert that lasted for 2 and half hours, the concert presented most of the songs from his latest album and a collection of his most popular old hits that kept fans mesmerized.
