Live New Year’s Eve performances at Al Maryah Island

ABU DHABI, December 15, 2016

Al Maryah Island has partnered with Platinum Records, the leading record label company which operates under the umbrella of MBC Group, to usher in 2017 with a star-studded music spectacular in the UAE capital this New Year’s Eve.

Visitors are invited to celebrate with Emirati star Hussain Al Jassmi, Egyptian pop icon Mohamed Hamaki, and Palestinian singing sensation Mohammed Assaf as they perform live on the waterfront Promenade at Al Maryah Island, Abu Dhabi’s business and lifestyle destination.
Award-winning singer Hussain Al Jassmi, famous for his hits 'Bawada'ak' and 'Wallah Mayiswa', will wow the audience with his much-loved repertoire of songs, which span two decades. The 2013 X-Factor Arabiya judge is one of the most famous artists to come out of the UAE and his performances are renowned for being full of emotion and pride for his home country. His show is guaranteed to give the audience a unique, once-in-a-lifetime evening which they will never forget.
Much-loved Egyptian pop icon Mohamed Hamaki will treat visitors to an unforgettable performance, packed with 10 years of songs such as 'Ahla Haga Feeki', 'We Aftakrt and Ma Balash', as well as tracks from his latest hit album, 'Omroh Ma Yegheib'.
Mohammed Assaf stunned the judges with his astonishing voice at the 2015 Arab Idol, which he went on to win. The 27-year-old ‘Nightingale of Palestine’ is universally loved for his passionate performances and is set to bring a poignant magic to this most special of evenings.
