Concert organiser 117Live has announced three major gigs for the autumn season, including an all-day festival.
Top of the bill is Sir Elton John who will take to the Autism Rocks Arena stage on Thursday December 15th.
The pre-Christmas show is part of the Brit’s 'Wonderful Crazy Night' tour and is his second live show in Dubai, and third in the UAE. With more than 4,000 concerts under his belt, spread across five decades, the Rocket Man singer is one of the biggest artists of all time. And a trophy cabinet of 38 gold and 27 platinum albums proves it.
Selena Gomez, the princess of pop, is also coming to Dubai to play a gig on Saturday November 19th, while an all-day festival will take place on Friday October 28th. To be known as Fiesta De Los Muertos, the line-up so far includes Major Lazer (known for hits like 'Lean On') and the recently reformed ’90s pop sensation All Saints. The Mariachis are also on the bill with local act Hollaphonic. Several more names will be announced in the coming weeks.
117Live has also confirmed that March 3rd and 31st next year will see more big concerts in the UAE, stay tuned for details.
