Just when we thought Dubai Opera was already jam-packed with a selections of shows, it has just announced three brand-new acts coming in 2019, and it includes top name Jake Bugg.

The British musician will be making his way to Dubai in 2019, along with South African rocker Ard Matthews and rock band Watershed, and London’s West End tribute to George Michael, Fastlove.

And early bird tickets for Jake Bugg and Fastlove are out right now, so you'll get 20 percent off if you book now.

You’ll know indie folk singer Jake Bugg from hit tracks Seen It All and Lighting Bolt, along with tracks from his most recent album, Hearts That Strain.

He rose to the top of the British music scene during the 2011 Glastonbury Festival, and has since won plenty of accolades, including Best Solo Artist at the NME awards in 2015.

Tickets are priced from Dhs195, and you can watch him live on Thursday February 7.

Dubai Opera will also be hosting West End’s stellar tribute act, Fastlove for one night only on Monday April 29.

Paying tribute to George Michael, this is your chance to relive his greatest hits such as Careless Whisper, Freedom, Faith and many more.

The tribute act has been celebrating George Michael’s 35-year pop history since its debut in 2017, and has since has sell-out performances throughout Europe and the UK.

Finally, for something with a bit more rock, get ready for Ard Matthews and Watershed to take to the stage on Thursday April 18. The original lead singer of Just Jinjer, Matthews’ debut album All Comes Round became one of the bestselling albums of all time in South Africa.

Along with the riffs and rocking sounds from Watershed, expect hit singles like Indigo Girl, Fine Way and Letters, as well as songs from the new album, Harbour.

You can nab a tickets for the show on Wednesday December 12 at noon onwards for Dhs150.

The Laughter Factory has also recently released the January line up for next year, too. From the looks of the stand-ups coming, you’re in for a few nights filled with laughter.
