As Saudi Arabia gets ready to host Egyptian singer Tamer Hosny for the first time on March 30th, a picture of a ticket for the upcoming concert in Jeddah started circulating online for one bizarre reason... "Dancing and swaying are strictly prohibited during the concert،" the ticket reads.
On top of this rule، people who have purchased Hosny's tickets were later informed that men and women will be seated in different sections of the arena where the concert will be held.
Earlier this month the General Entertainment Authority announced that Tamer Hosni concert would be held at the King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC) on 30 March.
All 6،000 concert tickets were sold out in less than two hours after they put up for sale.
Local newspaper Saudi Gazette said that the tickets were “sold out like hot cakes.”
The concert’s organizing committee did، however، announce some guidelines for the kingdom’s first ever music concert، such as customers not being allowed to buy more than three tickets، no children below 12 years old would be permitted to enter the concert، in addition to the prohibition of smoking and food.
The General Entertainment Authority also revealed plans to organize similar events، like Tamer Hosni concert، in the coming period.
