Tariq Saeed Alay, Director of the Sharjah Government Media Bureau, said: “We have always believed in music as a vehicle of joy, reflection and entertainment.
The power of the medium in people together and helping us staying connected cannot be overstated, and is something we need now more than ever, given the restrictions that have been imposed on social interactions and gatherings to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Notwithstanding our challenging circumstances, we sought to brighten up Eid Al-Fitr festivities this year for our community and Arabic music lovers across the globe.
These star-studded virtual concerts will be exceptional in their quality of entertainment and make for lifelong memories.
“This initiative reiterates our commitment to our social responsibility in protecting our community and bringing joy to people’s lives through art, music and culture.
As the region's premier performance and events venue, Al Majaz Amphitheatre will do its best in carrying forward its mission in full adherence with the precautionary measures being taken by the UAE government.
These concerts are a feast for the senses and by hosting a top line-up of artists, the audience can look forward to three exceptional evenings of live music even as they #StayHome.”
