UPDATE: 18/02/18 – 4.25pm – Bongo's Bingo featuring Boyzlife has, since the time of publishing, been moved to Thursday March 22, instead of Thursday February 22.
It’s been around for just under a year, and Bongo’s Bingo is one of the city’s top (if not THE top) new and alternative nights out.
The no-holds-barred, zany take on the conventional game of bingo – only with mobility scooters, cardboard cut-outs of Danny DeVito, retro hits, dancing on the table, boxes of Coco Pops and more confetti than you could possibly imagine – is back for a February edition on Thursday 22 at Dubai Media City’s Media One Hotel.
Last time, after the game finished, we had UK ’90s pop and dance trio N-Trance rip it up in front of an excited crowd that had spent two-and-a-half hours intensely bingoing. It went down a treat – trust us, it was epic.
Now, Irish pop duo Boyzlife are back in town following on from their epic performance at the first Remix 92 old school pop concerts at The Irish Village. The twosome of Keith Duffy, formerly of Boyzone fame, and Brian McFadden, of Westlife fame, will be performing after the bingo action concludes for a set containing classic hits from the two bands – including Love Me for a Reason, Uptown Girl, Flying Without Wings and Father and Son.
Expect a nutty night out, with tickets on sale now. Tickets almost always sell out, so get in quick – it’ll set you back Dhs150 for the night, with tickets available on Dubai.platinumlist.net.
Dhs150. Thu Mar 22, 8pm-2am. ON42, Media One Hotel, Dubai Media City, Dubai.platinumlist.net.
