Clearly the Iglesias household has been saying some good things about Dubai, because following on from father-of-the-house Julio’s performance at Dubai Opera earlier this year, it’s time for the younger Iglesias, Enrique, to come to town.
The King of Latin Pop, who’s released ten studio albums over a career spanning more than 20 years, Enrique Iglesias is coming to Dubai for a one-off performance to celebrate the opening of The Pointe on the Palm Jumeirah, Nakheel’s huge waterfront destination.
And it’s happening soon, on Friday December 14, no less.
Tickets are now available on www.ticketmaster.ae, and will set you back just Dhs150 for the day and evening spectacular, which will be headlined by a 90-minute run through of Iglesias’ greatest hits – and of course we’re getting ready to witness hordes of screaming fans sing along to Hero.
Iglesias last performed in Dubai at the Dubai Jazz Fest back in 2017, and it was a pretty spectacular show. As it happens, Snow Patrol, Alicia Keys and Jamiroquai have all just been announced as the headliners of 2019’s edition of the annual festival, which next year will be taking place between Wednesday February 20 and Friday 22. You can buy your tickets for this at 800tickets.com.
There will be a range of entertainment and music from 4pm through until 9pm, when Iglesias will take the stage, and then 10.30pm will see a huge fireworks show, before an after-party at various bars and clubs around The Pointe from 11pm until 3am.
It’s going to be a big night – would you dance, if I asked you to dance?
Dhs150. Fri Dec 14, 4pm-3am. The Pointe, Palm Jumeirah, www.ticketmaster.ae
