    Toby Keith to Perform at Men-Only Concert in Saudi Arabia During Trumpís Visit

    American country music star Toby Keith, known for songs such as "Made in America" and "Whiskey Girl," is scheduled to perform at a men-only concert in Saudi Arabia ó on the same weekend that President Donald Trump will be visiting the nation.

    Keith, who played at Trump's pre-inaugural celebration, will be performing in the Saudi capital of Riyadh on Saturday, his publicist confirmed to NBC News.

    Saudi entertainment website Lammt, which is marketing the event, said Saturday's concert would be free but open to men only. It will also feature an Arabian lute player.

    Keith spokeswoman Elaine Schock said this would be the singer's first time in the Arab kingdom ó but offered "no comment" on the male-only aspect of the show.
    Lammt described the event as a musical night featuring the American singer and popular Saudi artist Rabeh Sager.

    Saudi Arabia adheres to an conservative interpretation of Islamic law: Alcohol is banned and unrelated men and women are segregated in public, and women are not even allowed to drive cars.

    But the kingdom has recently loosened the reins on entertainment, including allowing musical concerts that had been banned for the past two decades.

    It was unclear if Keith would be performing some of his alcohol-inspired greatest hits, such as "Whiskey Girl," "Beer For My Horses" and "I Love This Bar."

    Saudi Arabia's Middle East Broadcasting Center (MBC) arranged the trip, Schock said.

    Saudi Arabia hopes to dazzle Trump with a line-up of summits and events this weekend.

    What do you think about this men-only performance? Should that be something US musicians contribute to?

    I don't know, I do know Toby Keith was a Big Hillary supporter in the last election.

    I think anyone that willingly exposes themselves to the crimsom naped howling that passes for music from Toby Kieth is someone that deserves our pity.

    I'm not so sure that was the case.

    I couldn't get into a bar the other night because it was women-only night.

    I wonder if he will play Red Solo cup. "Red Solo cup, I fill you up, proceed to party" LOL

    The article said that Saudis have a fun filled weekend planned for Trump. I wonder if that includes good seats to the weekly lashings or perhaps a beheading in town square. Saudi Arabia is one of the most barbaric countries in the ME....the world should shun them just based on human rights issues.
