The city of Cairo will be hosting the largest number of singers this year for New Year’s Eve concerts, since many are avoiding holding concerts in Lebanon due to the current unstable security conditions.
According to the London based Elaph, Lebanese singer Haifa Wahbi has changed her annual tradition of welcoming the New Year in Lebanon and will be holding a concert at the Samir Amis hotel in Cairo. Egyptian singer Amr Diab has also decided to spend New Year’s Eve in Cairo and will be holding two concerts, changing his usual tradition of holding performances in Europe and the USA.
Controversial Egyptian singer Ruby will also be performing at the Concorde Al Salam hotel in Cairo.
The competition of performing at the best hotels in Cairo increased among singers like Tamer Husni, Mustafa Amar, Ehab Tawfiq, and Hamada Hilal.
Arab Superstar Ragheb Alamah also decided to change his usual venue for holding New Year’s Eve concerts in Cairo and will be performing with the Gypsy Kings in Dubai.
Other singers like Egyptian signer Hani Shaker and Lebanese singer Diana Haddad have decided to hold their performances outside the Arab world. Hani will be performing in Germany, whereas Diana will hold her concert in Australia.
