Jordan, like other countries in the region (Lebanon, Syria) stages outdoor summertime concerts for tourists and locals alike. The ones in Jordan are normally held in Jerash, a city with fantastic Roman ruins about an hour north of Amman, but sometimes they're also held in Amman. On my last night in Jordan, I got to see a Jordanian Berklee-trained composter perform with the London Philharmonic in a Roman amphitheater in downtown Amman.

You just can't do this in the States, folks.
