Toby Keith Follows Trump, Will Perform In Saudi Arabia

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — American country singer Toby Keith, known for songs such as “Whiskey Girl” and “Beer For My Horses,” is scheduled to perform in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, this weekend in an event that coincides with President Donald Trump’s first overseas visit.

Saudi entertainment website Lammt, which is advertising the event, says Saturday’s free concert is open to men only. It will also feature an Arabian lute player.

Saudi Arabia adheres to an ultraconservative interpretation of Islamic law. Alcohol is banned and unrelated men and women are segregated in public.

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

I'm sure all his songs about hard drinking and partying will go over great with the Muslim crowd!

14. He'd probably get arrested for having a drink on stage.

I think alcohol is forbidden in most parts of Saudi Arabia if I'm not mistaken.
