Arab Idol Set to Hit Dubai!

15 Jul 2013

It was the season's hottest TV show and now Arab Idol is heading to the UAE!

Fans of reality TV show Arab Idol can catch up with their favourite stars next month as the live tour gets set to roll into Dubai. Winner Mohammad Assaf and finalists Ahmad Jamal and Farah Youssef will perform live this summer for fans eager to get in on the action.

The first concert will be held in Dubai on 15 August 2013 at the Dubai World Trade Centre with popular singer Ragheb Alameh planning to join the successful entrants on stage.

Palestinian Mohammed Assaf, 23, was a virtual unknown until he scooped the top prize at the show earlier this year making him a household name.

The show, which was held in the Lebanese capital Beirut, was watched by millions across the region and will draw thousands of UAE fans to its live concert series.

Two out of three Emirati and other Arabs living in the UAE watched the second season of the popular TV talent series, which is said to have had record viewing figures this year.
