Two of the most popular singers in the Middle East – Yara and Ibrahim Dashti – kicked off the Qatar Live series of concerts this weekend with a spectacular performance at the Katara Amphitheatre. 

The two performers wowed a crowd of hundreds of residents, visitors and football fans who were in Doha to support their countries’ national football teams for the 24th Arabian Gulf Cup Qatar 2019.

Qatar Live is a series of special music concerts and festivals organised by Qatar Airways and Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC). The events have been organised to align with the 24th Arabian Gulf Cup (26 Nov to 8 Dec) and the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2019™ (11 to 21 Dec) to provide world-class entertainment for football fans, visitors and residents.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive and Secretary-General of QNTC, HE Akbar Al Baker, said the performances by Yara and Ibrahim Dashti were a fantastic way to kick off Qatar Live.

It was our honour to have them perform here in Doha. The fantastic live performances on offer in Qatar, alongside the football, make Qatar the place to be this December. I hope that residents and visitors alike take the opportunity to enjoy such a unique mix of sport and music.’
