“I am overwhelmed with joy at my first ever visit to Algeria” said Lebanese singer Myriam Fares after arriving in Algeria to hold two concerts. An invitation was sent to Myriam Fares  from the Algerian Ministry of Culture to hold performances at the annual Timgad International Festival.
Once the news was out about Myriam’s concerts, her official page on Facebook was swarmed with comments by Algerians expressing their joy at her having her sing in in their home country.
Already the tickets to Myriam’s concerts were unofficially sold out and the managing committee of the festival has decided to cooperate with security officials to ensure that no unexpected chaos breaks out at Myriam’s first concert.
According to the MBC.net, around 150 security guards have been assigned to ensure that Myriam and her performers at the festival are well protected and that no unexpected problems arise out from people who are opposed to her performance in Algeria.
