Comedy star Russell Peters to open new Dubai Arena

Comedy superstar Russell Peters will play the first show at the new Dubai Arena this year, it has been confirmed.

The Emmy-winning stand-up legend is bringing his world tour to the venue at City Walk on Thursday June 6, with tickets on sale at 1pm this Sunday (April 7).

Since kicking off in Australia and New Zealand, Russell has already been to 29 cities in 20 countries playing for more than 100,000 fans worldwide.

It features all-new observational comedy material, and we've been promised plenty of audience interaction (so make sure you don't sit too near the front if you don't want to get involved).

The show will be the first in the new Dubai Arena, which boasts state-of-the-art facilities and space for thousands of fans.

Last time Russell came to the UAE, his shows were a complete sell-out – so demand is expected to be high.

Tickets start at Dhs200 for bronze and go on sale at 1pm on Sunday April 7 via

Just make sure you're ready to buy, because this is going to be a popular gig.

Thu Jun 6. Tickets on sale 1pm, Sun Apr 7. Dubai Arena, City Walk, Al Safa Street. For more information, go to
