The singer launched the show with a few Arabic words, which rang well with the Lebanese crowd who were jumping and screaming. Tarja sang some fan-favorites from her own tracks and gave the fans “some of her past,” as she put it, in reference to her history with the band Nightwish, which has a huge fanbase in Lebanon.
