The event is the latest in a string of live performances in Saudi Arabia by some of the top international artists. Last year, Saudi star Mohammed Abdu performed live in Jeddah, along with Saudi artist Rabeh Sager and the Iraqi-Saudi singer Majid Al-Muhandis, in what was the city’s first open music concert in seven years.

Mariah Carey has made her love of Arab designers no secret, making several red carpet appearances wearing gowns from eponymous Kuwaiti label Yousef AlJasmi.

Do you think the Why You So Obsessed With Me? singer will choose a Middle Eastern design for her first concert in Saudi?

Tickets for both concerts are available from 295SAR (Dhs290) at
