on Tour - October 2003
A FairuzOnline.com Exclusive!!
Uncasville, USA – With homage to Lebanon,
Fairuz opened the first night of her US tour before an audience
of thousands. Appearing in a stunning Afghan-styled black dress,
our Ambassador to the Stars shined as she took her audience on
a nostalgic journey through classic Rahbani masterpieces such
as “Bhibbak ya Libnan”, “Ya Mighzal”,
“Ruddani”, and “Sawa Rbeena”, while including
some newly composed songs (Ya Salaam, Ma Shawarit Hali).
The audience, some of whom had traveled thousands of miles to
see the Legend, was mesmerized as Fairuz transformed them with
her to their little villages in “Ba’adana man Yaqsidil
Kuroom”, the gentle hills of a land far away in “Ya
Rubu’a Biladi”, and to days of carefree summer nights
in “Akhi Iyam Esseifiyeh”. The orchestra, which included
musicians from both Lebanon and Armenia, was beautifully conducted
by Mr. Karen Durgarian who added energy and a special touch of
enthusiasm to the performance.
Crowning the event was Fairuz’s latest, Ya Di’annou,
which brought the crowd to their feet, cheering for their diva
to return for more. Fairuz obliged her fans with four encores,
including “Nassam ‘aleina Elhawa”, only to bow
and wave one final time before disappearing offstage amidst deafening
cheers and thunderous applause from the audience.
Fairuz continues on her tour and is scheduled to perform in Los
Angeles on Saturday October 18, followed by her final stop on
this tour at Detroit’s Fox Theatre on October 23rd.
