Both Khaled and Lena will be performing in AlUla for the first time, while each of them is preparing a special concert to entertain the audience and making it an unforgettable moment for their concerts' attendees.
Lena says: "I am proud to perform my first-time concert in Saudi Arabia at the city of ancient civilizations' crossroads in AlUla, and of course at Maraya, a unique venue of kind architecturally and musical programming.
