The performance of Darren Espanto and Darren Espanto at the Expo 2020 Dubai’s Jubilee Stage recently has hit the headlines of two major Arabic newspapers in the UAE.
The concert, which drew thousands of audiences–including foreign concertgoers, was featured in Albayan and Al Khaleej newspapers.
“Not only did the audience sing with the band [December Avenue], but praised them with warm, countless rounds of applause. It seemed that this [warm support] was not expected by the band members, according to the band leader’s expression, who thanked their fans for the “high level of love”. Singer Darren Espanto likewise drew a remarkable throng of Filipinos and Expo visitors,” Albayan wrote in Arabic.
Meanwhile, Al Khaleej described the concert as a huge artistic concert at the Jubilee theatre.
“The audience was introduced to Filipino music for a night and the event witnessed a huge turnout from the Filipino community in the Emirates, as well as visitors to the global event of all nationalities,” it added.
