ANTHONY TOUMA’S FIRST SOLO GIG
Anthony Touma performed to hundreds of cheering fans last night at his first ever solo concert in Lebanon. On stage at Beirut Souks, The Voice contestant mixed up his playlist with a selection of radio hits, moving ballads and, of course, “Billie Jean.” After complaining that he’s too often called cute, the singer broke into “Sexy and I Know It” to prove the label wrong (he was dressed head-to-toe in Aïzone, so we’d hardly disagree). Comedian Nemr Abou Nassar joined the action with a stand-up set, before inviting fans on stage to dance with Anthony. The concert should hold even the most devoted fans over until the rising star’s debut album.
