Big Ben chimed as Mohammed Assaf's concert gave Londoners something to smile about!

Big Ben chimed as Mohammed Assaf dazzled hundreds of concertgoers on Friday at his first ever London concert at the prestigious Central Hall Westminster.

Huge crowds gathered in queues hours before the event had started, as they were keen to be the first to get into the venue and get a glimpse of their fave Arab Idol.

The Palestinian golden boy set the stage on fire, as the crowd danced the night away in tune with his energetic dabkeh moves and lively hits.

In true charitable Assaf style, parts of the proceeds went to MAP (Medical Aid for Palestinians), which offers medical support in #Gaza.

MAP must have truly appreciated the singer's generous donation, as table tickets went for £150/person including meza dinner for a Diamon ticket, and £175/Person including meza dinner for a Platinum ticket.

Meanwhile, balcony tickets went for: Bronze: £60 / ticket, Silver: £80 / ticket and Gold: £100 / ticket.

Assaf's list of achievements grow bigger by the minute. For the past two weeks, the star has been travelling around the Middle East where he met thousands of his fans at his very first album-signing tour.

Palestine, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and the UAE were all on the list. The star signed copies of his first - and only - album "ASSAF" and took selfies with those lucky ones who were able to reach him first!

As always, you were 442, Assaf!
