Legendary Arab singer Rashed al-Majed gave his fans three encores in the Saudi capital Thursday night.Majed opened for Mohammed Abdu as part of what one music lover called a "paradigm shift" in the conservative Islamic kingdom, which has cautiously begun introducing entertainment despite opposition from Muslim hard-liners.Both singers have Saudi roots and are popular throughout the Arab world but fans said Abdu had not sung in the Saudi capital since 1988 .There was lots of enthusiastic shouting and calls of "Rashed" before the energy peaked, pushing the singer to his three encores.After more than 90 minutes, it was time to do it all again when Abdu took the stage at around midnight.
