When we broke the news of the mahoosive throwback gig that was the Backstreet Boys live at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on Friday April 20, Dubaians responded in force.
Thousands of comments, shares, likes and excitable responses from residents (and former residents full of regret) was followed by an influx of ticket purchases for what’s lining up to be one of the top gigs of 2018.
Last week it was announced that regular, golden circle and lounge categories for the gig had all sold out, and it is now official that the remaining all-inclusive VIP categories have been snapped up like hot cakes too. It’s official, we all love the Backstreet Boys.
And here’s why.
The Backstreet Boys will be supported for former Spice Girl Mel C, and Lemar of 50/50 and If There’s Any Justice in the World fame.
“We are overwhelmed by the response received by Blended festival and are looking forward to see them on April 20th” Girish Bhat, Managing Director, Done Events.
While it’s understandable that fans are desperate to get hands on any tickets possible for a gig of this scale, it’s also our duty to remind you to be totally mindful of counterfeit tickets that may make their way onto third party ticket retailers or classified ad websites. Do not purchase your tickets from anyone other than an authorised ticket reseller. Not only will they not be valid, but you’d be wasting a lot of money on it. Just don’t.
If you do still want to get tickets for the festival, we’ve got ten tickets up for grabs, plus Dhs3,000, more gig tickets, dinners, staycations and more at the Time Out Dubai Quiz at The Terrace, taking place this Wednesday on March 14.

UPDATE: Ah. Following a surge of bookings, the Time Out Dubai Quiz at The Terrace is also a complete sell-out. Please call The Terrace directly on 04 435 0270 for waiting list/cancellation inquiries.
