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.
