Finally, some more concert news to look forward to. Brit Indie boys Keane are seeing us through the summer but the winter music scene is going to be in a league of its own as promoters are hinting they may bring Britney Spears, Beyonce, and maybe even Michael Jackson to us.

Beyonce, who was supposed to play Dubai earlier this year, is now tipped for October, while Britney looks set to head to the Middle East the month after, when she completes her European tour dates.

A senior executive at AEG Live said Miss Spears would add the city at the end of her current tour, the Circus Tour Secrets.

"Bringing Britney Spears to Dubai will be a massive hit - we can see all the communities getting into it and the show being an unprecedented sell out," said the source on condition of anonymity.The executive said the organisers could not release an official statement until all of the show's sponsors had been signed up.

"Britney is confirmed 100 per cent, it is just a matter of working out the finer details, getting all the promoters on board and happy."

The official added: "An announcement will be made shortly. It's imminent."
