Win! Two Tickets to See Sami Yusuf Live!

    Cairo is buzzing about this much-anticipated concert, and Cairo 360
    wants to send you and a friend to see Sami Yusuf live in concert!

    Dubbed by Time Magazine as ‘Islam’s Biggest Rock Star’, British Iranian
    singer Sami Yusuf has sold millions of records and sold out world tours with
    his touching, spiritual songs. Sung both in Arabic and English, Yusuf’s music
    has a universal appeal and has led him to be named among the world’s 500 Most
    Influential Muslims. His Cairo concert is part of his world tour for his latest
    album Where Ever You Are.

    Our friends at Tazkarty are giving away two platinum
    tickets worth 400LE each
    to see the British-Iranian singer perform
    live at the Gezirah Youth Center. Following a five-year hiatus since his last
    album, this incredibly popular musician, composer and multi-instrumentalist
    should definitely not be missed.

    Yusuf is no stranger to Cairo, having left a few years in the city to study Arabic after releasing his first
    official album, Al-Mu’allim, which went on to
    sell two million copies worldwide. It was his second album My Ummah that really propelled Yusuf into global recognition,
    though; and it went on to sell and incredible four million copies.

    Sami Yusuf will be the first international
    artist to perform in post-revolution Egypt, and the events of January 25th
    inspired him to write his song ‘I’m Your Hope’, dedicated to youth around the
    world.

    So, for a
    chance to see him at the Gezira Youth Centre on June 11th to mark
    the release of his third album Where Ever You Are, all you have to do
    is answer this simple question: How many years
    did Sami Yusuf live in Egypt for?
