Liam Payne is coming to Dubai this month

Star to play at Global Village and entry is completely free with park access

1D fans are about to lose their minds, because ex-Directioner Liam Payne is coming to Dubai very, very soon.

It’s all part of Virgin Radio DXB’s tenth birthday celebrations, and the gig will be kicking off on Friday March 30 at 9pm. Having most recently recorded the soundtrack for the latest Fifty Shades movie, alongside Rita Ora (who played in Dubai last weekend, here’s what happened), Payne comes to Dubai after a massive 2017, which saw him release his first handful of tracks post-One Direction.

Payne will be playing at Global Village, on the Main Cultural Stage, and we’re expecting more acts to be announced as part of Virgin Radio’s birthday bash.

The best part? Entry is absolutely free with park access – which will cost you just Dhs15.

Strip That Down landed in June last year and has got nearly a quarter of a billion YouTube streams already, and has spent the last year bouncing between the US and UK for festivals, radio shows and TV appearances.

If you’ve not heard the song yet, here’s what you can expect to see more of when Payne comes rolling into town on March 30.
