Country star Toby Keith is jetting off to Saudi Arabia to perform during President Donald Trump's first state visit.

The singer, who was a big part of Trump's inauguration celebrations in January, will perform in Riyadh during the President's weekend visit.

The gig will be an alcohol-free, men-only event, in accordance with Saudi law - men and women are not allowed to mix at public functions.

An Arabian lute player will join Keith on the bill.

Keith may be considered an odd choice to perform in a country where alcohol is banned - his hits "Beer for My Horses," "Get Drunk" and "Be Somebody," and "Get My Drink On."
