Sir Bob Geldof preview

Irish singer at Irish Village ahead of St Patrick's Day

Boomtown Rat and legendary philanthropist Geldof is no stranger to Dubai. We’ve lost count of his like-clockwork appearances; landing at The Irish Village to celebrate St Patrick’s Day. This year is no different, so expect more of the same – bedraggled hits, a legion of loyal revellers and gallons of the dark stuff. The 60-year-old Nobel Peace Prize nominee is looking increasingly aged these days, but is said to still be on energetic form. Last year saw the release of his first album in a decade, the wittily-titled How to Compose Popular Songs That Will Sell, so expect new tracks between the Boomtown back catalogue. See for a full interview.
