The Jeddah Corniche Circuit Main Stage will host superstar, musician, singer, songwriter, and multi-Grammy-award winner Alicia Keys on Saturday, March 9th, 2024, as part of the Formula 1 STC Saudi Arabian Grand Prix 2024. This is the first time Keys will perform in Jeddah, and the third time she has performed in Saudi Arabia. She’ll be on stage with the internationally known music icon Pharrell Williams. The concert on March 9th, and accompanying intimate conversations on March 8th, are brought to you by Good Intentions and MDLBEAST.

In honor of International Women’s Day on Friday, March 8th, Keys will host the third edition of her initiative, Women to Women. The private event, hosted by MDLBEAST, will take place in Jeddah during Grand Prix week. Women to Women is a gathering of influential and impactful female trailblazers, who will discuss how women are pushing the culture forward in Saudi Arabia and around the world. The event shares perspectives and purposes from a cross-section of women making significant changes in the Kingdom. Keys is no stranger to the country after visiting twice before, where she was captivated by the desert and the ancient civilizations.

“I am thrilled to be back on stage, this time in Jeddah, performing in a place I have never performed in before, and in a way, I never have in this region. I’m also so inspired to connect in a meaningful way with the amazing women there to discuss cultural, creative, and boundary-pushing narratives we are collectively and individually leading. In light of International Women’s Day on March 8th, it’s the perfect time to discuss important issues affecting us.” – Alicia Keys explained
