British singer Dido to perform in Dubai

British singer Dido is coming to Dubai later this year, and music fans in the city are sure to be excited.

It will be the first time the singer will be visiting the emirate, as part as her “Still On My Mind’ comeback tour.

And after 15 years off the touring circuit Dido is back and will be performing live at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on Friday December 13.

Act fast as tickets go on sale today (Monday September 2) at noon, starting at Dhs295, visit 800tickets.com or ae.bookmyshow.com.

The British singer has sold more than 40 million records worldwide, and hit the spotlight in 1999 with her debut album No Angel, which sold more than 21 million copies. It also won her several awards including Best British Female and Best British Album at the BRITS. She has won four BRIT Awards in total.

It’s the final stop on a global tour for the singer, and Dubai fans can look forward to more than two decades worth of tunes, including Thank You, Life For Rent, No Angel, Here With Me and White Flag.



Her world tour started in Prague in May this year and she’s since visited the USA, South America and Europe.

“We are excited to have Dido add Dubai to the tour,” said Aleksandra Gorokhova, marketing manager of event management company Mission Control X.

“It will be the artist’s first performance in the city and the timing is just perfect. Great voice, great music and a great outdoor venue in December – what else can we wish for? Her sold-out performances around the world have received outstanding reviews, further affirming her stardom status. Middle East fans now have an opportunity to see her live and we at MissionControl X (MCX) are pleased to host her.”

Sudhir Syal, CEO Middle East of BookMyShow added: “Keeping with our mission to provide the best in entertainment to Dubai’s multi-cultural audience, we are happy to partner MCX in announcing the concert at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre. Dido is an internationally acclaimed singer and song-writer who has performed to audiences across the globe. This is her first tour in 15 on the back of the release of an all-new album. We look forward to a phenomenal night.”
