Boyzone, Busted and The Proclaimers all coming to Dubai

Three legendary bands are coming to Dubai – but you won't have to walk 500 Miles or wait until the Year 3000 to see them play, No Matter What.

Yes, that's right – The Irish Village and Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium are hosting Busted, Boyzone and The Proclaimers in March and April, and we couldn't be more excited.

First up are the boys from Busted, who will belt out hits including Air Hostess and What I Go to School For in front of crowds at The Irish Village on Thursday March 14.

The band burst back onto the pop scene in 2015 following a 10-year split, and since then they've released new music and played arenas around the world.

Next up on Friday April 12 are Irish legends Boyzone, who are playing a show at Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium.

With three BRIT Awards behind them, their appearance in the UAE is part of a major global farewell tour, after which they will split up for good.

It could be your last chance to see Boyzone play Love Me For a Reason live forever, so make sure you get tickets for this one early.

Finally on Thursday April 25 comes bespectacled Scottish sibling duo The Proclaimers, who arrive on the first plane from Auchtermuchty in Fife ready to belt out 500 Miles for as far as the ear can hear.

But they also have a range of other hits which you've probably heard too, including Letter from America and Sunshine on Leith, which of course they croon out in their famously broad accents.

But that's not all, because there are two other brilliant gigs coming up as well. On Thursday April 18, expect power pop sounds from Britpop band Dodgy, with hits including Staying Out for the Summer and Good Enough.

And on Thursday May 2, funk group The Brand New Heavies will be playing hits including Never Stop and Back to Love.

You can book your tickets now for the 21-and-over gigs via 800Tickets, and we'd recommend doing so as soon as you can because these bands really know how to sell out a show.
