Tamer Hosny’s concert is set to take place in Jeddah on March 30. However the tickets for the concert have garnered more attention than the concert itself.
Since pictures of the concert tickets with “Dancing is strictly prohibited during the concert” instruction popped up on the internet, social media users have started trolling the authorities.
Several Twitter users ridiculed the instructions via their tweets.
“Ladies and gentlemen, please fasten your seat belts,” one Twitter user said.
“The corridors and seats will be equipped with sway detectors. Anyone who thinks about swaying will be kicked out.”
Another tweeted: “No dancing or swaying in a concert! It’s like putting ice under the sun and asking it not to melt.”
Following its new modernization drive, the ultra-conservative kingdom has hosted a series of concerts in recent months by artists such as Lebanon’s Hiba Tawaji and legendary Greek composer Yanni.
The said drive is being led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman who seeks to balance unpopular subsidy cuts in an era of low oil prices with more entertainment . although he has faced some opposition from Muslim religious leaders.
