What Happened at Avicii’s Concert Yesterday?

Posted By :

avicii

I had two regular tickets to Avicii’s concert yesterday but I couldn’t go so I gave them to a friend who was grateful at first but was furious this morning when I called him to see how the concert went. Apparently, the concert, the setup, the sound and video effects and Avicii were great but the organization was very bad whereas he had to wait for more than 2 hours before getting in. He told me some people just threw away their tickets and left. I noticed a lot of angry comments on the Facebook event’s page as well.

I don’t know why people had to wait for so long but from what I’ve heard, the entrance to the regular & teen sections was narrow so people were literally squished there while VIP ticket holders got the huge Biel entrance. Add to that never-ending security checks, Saturday night traffic and people not respecting the queues.

In all cases, someone owes these fans an explanation but I’m glad I didn’t go last night.

British Singer Seal Sheds Light On Local Talent During His Beirut Visit

seal Original Story via Stepfeed

British Soul and R&B singer Seal was visiting Beirut and held a great, but sort of short, concert on Thursday at the Beiteddine Festival. During his stay, Seal dropped by Beirut Souks where he discovered an aspiring and talented young Lebanese musician called Peter Chouchani and decided to perform with him and share the duet on his Facebook page.

To be honest, I’ve never heard of Peter Chouchani before but I’ve googled a couple of his songs and he’s clearly passionate about music and has a great voice. This is an amazing opportunity for him and I hope the exposure that he got will help him become as popular as Seal. After all, that’s how Seal was discovered and look where he is now.

Here’s the video:

And I found this cover by Peter:

Americans React To Lebanese Singers

Watch Americans react to the instagram accounts of Nancy Ajram, Myriam Fares, Elissa, Najwa Karam, and Yara. Everyone liked Nancy Ajram, the guys thought Mariam Fares was super hot (she is) and wanted to DM her, Elissa was nicknamed the Madonna of Lebanon (huh?) and all were shocked that Najwa Karam is 50 years old.

If they wanted priceless reactions, they should have included Haifa Wehbe or Miriam Klink maybe.

That Singer We’ve All Been Laughing at is Apparently A Crook

Posted By :

nabil

Nabil Harfouche, or as I like to call him Moustachio, is apparently involved in a very serious corruption case that was raised last year by Rima Karaki. If we were to believe Rima’s report, and it’s honestly hard not to, Nabil and his partner Naji Sfeir were running a Christian charity and stealing money from people for over 10 years. The charity was closed down last year from what I heard but I can’t find the news anywhere.

The other theory is that Nabil is so handsome and his voice is so beautiful that he decided to give up everything and kick off his music career.

A Beautiful Oriental Version of Pink Floyd’s The Wall

pink

It’s performed by a group called Bizimkiler Layihesi, a group of musicians that were brought together by the ANS television channel (Azerbaijan TV). They also interpreted other great songs such as “We Will Rock You” by Queen, “Roadhouse blues” by The Doors but this is their best interpretation by far!

If you are a Pink Floyd fan, you will love it.

This is a hilarious animation video but the message it is trying to pass is not funny at all. In fact, it reflects perfectly the sad truth we are living in: that climate change is happening and that we need to act before it’s too late.

Faraya

We don’t need to wait for the government to change our ways but we need to keep pressuring the authorities on such matters and raising our voices or even protesting when needed. Till then, we can start with the simplest things by turning off the lights and Air Conditioning when we are not in the house, investing in renewable energy (solar panels etc.), reducing waste and car pooling among others.

Check out the song, it’s amazing:
