February has been hailed for many years as the month of love. While some focus all their energies on expressing how they feel on that special Valentine’s Day, others take the whole month as an opportunity for romance. So whether you’re the former or latter, or even a single person looking to enjoy some good music, we’ve got the lowdown for you on all the hot concerts in February.

Egyptian pop star Mohamed Hamaky will be kicking things off this Thursday with an early Valentine’s Day celebration at Al Shams Club. Next up, the talented Syrian songstress Faia Younan will be delighting audiences with her majestic voice on Saturday, February 9 at The Marquee Theatre in New Cairo.

Cairo Opera House joins the festivities next on February 12 with the magnificent Medhat Saleh kicking off the first Valentine’s Day concert. On the next day, Riham Abd El Hakim will be taking to the stage, and on the third day, the real Valentine’s Day, superstar Hany Shaker will be lighting up the Opera House with his unique voice and talent.
