The American rock band last played a show in the country in 2008, and seven years later, Jon and the rest of the group will return in October.
Jon said in a statement, “We’ve toured around the world since 2008 and are excited to reunite with our UAE fans again! See you Thursday, 1st of October 2015.”
The stars will take over Abu Dhabi that Thursday evening as they entertain fans from across the region at the du Arena, Yas Island.
