The multi-Grammy award winner will be performing at Maraya on February 24 and tickets are on sale now…

Exciting news has come in from AlUla Moments 2023 as RnB superstar Alicia Keys is headed for AlUla to perform live at the award-winning Maraya.

Sharing her soulful vocals and unmatched energy, we can’t wait for Friday February 24 for what is sure to be another sold-out, show-stopping performance.

So, get your tickets via Ticketmasterksa.com quickly. The Gold tickets are priced at SAR1,200 and SAR1,700 for the Premium. There will be a return shuttle transfer from the Winter Park meeting point to the Maraya concert hall. Ticket-holders can also look forward to a reception service before the concert where light food and refreshments will be served.

The intimate concert will see the artist sing some of her biggest hits, such as Fallin’, No One, Girl On Fire, and Empire State of Mind, as well as music from the album Keys.

More than just a wonder with her vocals, Keys is known for her incredible skills on the piano, so fans can look forward to many a medley from the grand piano on the Maraya stage, with Keys performing a series of ballads from throughout her two-decade career.

But that’s not all. The Superwoman returns to the beautiful oasis of AlUla for a weekend filled with events and special experiences.

Following her concert on February 24, Keys will be hosting the second edition of a unique off-the-record dialogue entitled “Women to Women” on Saturday February 25 at Madrasat Addeera, AlUla’s first art and design centre.

Keys is no stranger to AlUla, having performed at the Maraya concert hall in 2022. She also participated in the “Women to Women” intimate town hall-style conversation last year for selected guests, where Saudi women and attendees from all different backgrounds spoke up, expressed their opinions, asked questions and shared knowledge. Hosted by Good Intentions, a Saudi-based creative consultancy, the agency aims to amplify women’s voices across the Kingdom.

With her distinct voice and uplifting messages, not to mention her inspiring women’s empowerment and community outreach initiatives, it seems like the legendary Alicia Keys continues to leave a lasting impression on the people of AlUla.

“There is no denying the beauty and enchantment of AlUla. I have always been an explorer, and I adore discovering ancient places and what has been left behind of times long gone,” says Keys. “But there is something more. I met women business owners here that had a powerful sense of creating meaningful experiences. I visited a women’s music school in the old town and got to see first-hand the continuation of the timeless artisan traditions here. I feel the future emerging in a way I was never aware of before. And as an artist, I feel a sense of belonging and connection – with nature, humanity, and with the magic of this special place.”
