Grammy-nominated R&B star Akon has announced his fourth concert in Dubai, which is set to take place on Friday December 3 at Dubai World Trade Centre, across Saeed Halls 1, 2 and 3.
In a move which will no doubt please younger fans of the ‘Smack That’ singer, there will be an area exclusively for under 21s, with a capacity of 2,000. Organisers anticipate a crowd of 10,000 will shell out to see the multi-platinum artist, who will release his new album Akonic at the end of November.
A variety of tickets will soon be available for purchase, priced as follows: Under 21 Youth Zone (ages 18-21) Dhs300; Arena Standing Dhs350; VIP Select Dhs550; Akon Lounge Dhs850. The standing area will be around the stage and main floor, while those with VIP tickets will have access to an elevated standing section (though there will be a limited number of tables). Akon Lounge ticket holders will have access to a secluded elevated section with seating, table service and free selected beverages.
