Comedian Russell Peters has announced his return to Dubai, with his new ‘Almost Famous World Tour’ set to hit the city on January 19th and 20th at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
“The Russell Peters Almost Famous World Tour” (#RussellPetersDXB), is being brought to Dubai du Live! and will be produced by Flash Entertainment and Live Nation Middle East. The show will features all new material, plus Peters’ lightning-fast audience improvisation.
Peters' previous UAE shows back in 2012 and 2013 set attendance records and saw sell-out crowds at all shows. He was also the first South Asian to sell-out Harlem’s Apollo Theatre, and was the first comedian to sell-out Brooklyn’s Barclays Arena in 2012 – a show which became the largest comedy show in Brooklyn history.
James Craven, managing director of Live Nation Middle East, said: “As a promoter it’s always exciting to feed the appetite of our local audience. Russell Peters has a huge following in the Middle East and to bring him back to the region where he has previously enjoyed sold out shows is great for us and his fans. This time round he has new material and a brand new show so it’s exciting to be able to share this. We are also looking forward to be promoting this show in partnership with Flash Entertainment and confident that this will be the first of many new shows we bring together in Dubai.”
The ‘Almost Famous World Tour’ has already sold over 150,000 tickets in Canada, where Peters will become the first comedian to sell-out Toronto’s Air Canada Centre for a sixth time.
The ‘Almost Famous World Tour’ will also feature Russell's Official Tour DJ; New York City's DJ Spinbad, as well as video cameras and screens for an up-close and intimate show setting.
