DUBAI: Comedian Russell Peters is set to make a return to Saudi Arabia with a show at AlUla’s majestic Maraya concert hall on Feb. 18.
It will be the Canadian funnyman’s first appearance in the Kingdom’s UNESCO World Heritage Site, although he performed in the country in 2016.
The stand-up show is part of the comic’s Act Your Age World Tour, which launched in Cairo in December and has sold out in Abu Dhabi, Amman, Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C., and Houston.
The mirrored Maraya venue has recently played host to a number of international stars such as Italian operatic tenor Andrea Bocelli, and US songstress Alicia Keys, and is due to welcome British singer Seal on Feb. 17.
The shows are part of the two-month AlUla Moments festival, similar to Riyadh Season, which is in its third edition.
Tickets for Peters’ show can be purchased online at experiencealula.com.
