Music sensations came together for a night of entertainment which saw tens of thousands of fans fill out the Diriyah concert arena as they were wowed by headliner Pitbull along with Don Omar, Shaggy and Marshmello.

‘Mr Worldwide’, who has sold millions of records across the globe, returned to Saudi Arabia for the second time this year, encouraging the Saudi people to turn a negative into a positive and then went on to sing the number one ‘Give Me Everything’.  He continued blasting off major hits such as ‘Timber’ and ‘Time of Our Lives’ and the crowd loved him.

The mega-star line-up was the third night of incredible music in the action packed Diriyah Season which will also see at least four more nights of entertainment throughout December, including tomorrow’s concert hosting Lil Wayne, Tyga and Future and next weekend’s line-up of Usher, Chris Brown and Akon.

The evening at the iconic UNESCO Heritage site began with the reggaeton beats of Don Omar, performing an array of hits, before award-winning artist Shaggy continued to pump out the hits including his renowned number one ‘It Wasn’t Me’. He can sing over and over it wasn’t him, but in the end, it was definitely him making the audience go wild.

Electro legend Marshmello then took to stage, blasting out beats as the purposely built stage lit up the sky over historical Diriyah with beaming lights and a mesmerizing laser show.

The last tunes of this historical evening were sung by the voices of young Saudis together with Pitbull, tunes travelling through the dark Saudi Arabian night creating memories for life.

Pitbull about attending Diriyah Season “For one it is an honour, for two it is always great to be a part of history. That is one thing I love about music, how it brings everyone together to have a great time. To be here in Saudi Arabia, Diriyah and Diriyah Season, thank you guys, we appreciate it, looking forward to putting on a show so you guys can dance and have a great time. Mr. 305, Mr. Worldwide, checking in, checking out.”
