DUBAI: US rock band OneRepublic will take the stage at Saudi Arabia’s Maraya, the world’s largest mirrored building located in AlUla.
The Grammy-nominated superstars’ gig will take place on Nov. 10 as part of the AlUla Moments concert series that coincides with the Ancient Kingdoms Festival.
This will be the band’s first time performing in Saudi Arabia.
The pop-rock band will sing songs from their popular albums like “Oh My My, Human,” “Native” and others. Along with their “Top Gun: Maverick” themed song – “I Ain’t Worried,” they will also play selected tracks from their newly released “Never Ending Summer” as part of the album’s tour.
OneRepublic’s debut album “Dreaming Out Loud” in 2007 included the 20 million selling smash single “Apologize” and earned them a Grammy nomination. The band released several albums thereafter, achieving over five billion streams on Spotify to date.
Syrian Faia Younan will also perform at Maraya. After a successful performance in November 2021, she will bring her unique mix of fresh, light, original, Arabic and Syriac songs to the stage on Nov. 18.
Egyptian soprano Mai Farouk and the Arab Orchestra will take the stage on Nov. 25.
The Arab Orchestra will be directed by Maestro Mostafa Helmy.
