Toby Keith to perform in Saudi Arabia while Trump is there

Written by  PETER SBLENDORIO

Country music star Toby Keith is saddling up for a concert in Saudi Arabia the same weekend President Trump visits the nation.

The 55-year-old Keith — who performed at Trump's inauguration — will put on a show in the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh in front of a men-only crowd on Saturday.

The double-billed concert will also feature popular Saudi singer and lute player Rabeh Saqer in what is being advertised as "An Arabian Lute & American Guitar unite in a star-studded night."

The concert takes place in the Middle Eastern country at the same time as President Trump's first trip overseas since taking over the Oval Office. While he's in Saudi Arabia this weekend, Trump intends to unveil his ideas for what White House officials are calling an "Arab NATO" that would help lead a fight against terrorism, according to The Washington Post.

No one has specified whether Keith's concert was intended to take place the same weekend that Trump was in Saudi Arabia, but a spokesperson for the White House recently said they didn't know anything about Keith's concert and that the singer would not be traveling with Trump, according to The Washington Post.
