Iranian young pop singer Mohammad Alizadeh’s new series of concerts this year (started March 21) concludes at Milad Hall of Tehran International Fair Grounds today.

With two shows each night at 7 pm and 10:15 pm, the eight performances on the four consecutive days of the program (April 29-May 2) are all sold out, according to the ticket sale website

Considering the 2,100-seat capacity of the hall, almost 17,000 people would have watched his concerts, a favorable start suggesting that the singer plans to keep or even break his record in the number of performances in Tehran and across the country. Currently Alizadeh, 35, holds the record for the highest number of performances for a singer in Iran after the 1979 Islamic Revolution. He organized 46 concerts last year (ended March 20).

Out of Tehran also, all his concerts have been welcomed by music enthusiasts who love the romantic songs he sings with much emotion. Last year, he had over 105 performances in more than 15 provinces. Furthermore, it is not just the number of concerts which have made him the top performer in the country, but the rousing reception he has received at all times is an indication of his popularity.  All his concerts are usually sold out days in advance.

  Best Seller in 2012

Alizadeh released his first official album in 2008; however, he gained popularity with his second album ‘Surprise’ one year later. His third album ‘I Have Your Heart’ hit the market in 2012 and was among the best-sellers of the year. His last album ‘I Said Don’t Go’ has been distributed since January. He has sung for many TV programs and series as well.

His first experience on stage was at the 28th Fajr Music Festival in 2012 where his performance was selected as the best in the pop section.

Since then, the young singer started holding concerts in Tehran and other cities and gradually increased the number of his shows, all organized by Irangaam Records, a record company in Tehran which has distributed his albums too. In 2014, he had over 40 showings across Iran and in 2015 he held 30 concerts in Tehran alone, the most by any singer.

Also a lyricist, composer and guitar player, Alizadeh has several hits which he usually performs in his concerts including ‘Don’t Think About it’, ‘Brother’, ‘Come Back’, ‘I’m Tired’, ‘I Miss You’, ‘Except You’, ‘40 Degrees’ and ‘My Love These Days’ among many others.
