During my visit and performances in Egypt I experienced and fell in love with the beautiful culture, joyous and welcoming spirit, warmth and overwhelming generosity of its people.” In regards to the concert’s recording he noted its exclusivity saying, “This was a once-in-a-lifetime, unforgettable event and it has been immortalized in a stunning 4K video production with the best 5.1 surround audio that I have ever made in my life.
