American singer Lady Gaga will censor her upcoming concert in Dubai, organisers have confirmed.
Becky Artmonsky, co-founder and CEO ATW Live, one of three companies responsible for bringing the US pop star to Dubai, said Gaga "understands the cultural sensitivities” of performing in the region and the concert would take that into account.
“[But Gaga is] very excited to be performing for her fans here and that is always the most important thing," Artmonsky said.
“Her tour has just kicked off in North America and she has created an amazing structure for the show, we’re going to try and replicate that as best we can.”
The September 10 gig at Meydan Racecourse will be the singer’s first concert in the Gulf.
The 28-year-old is known for her outlandish performances, including provocative costumes, dance moves and lyrics.
Her concerts in Indonesia – the world’s most populous Muslim country – were cancelled in 2012 amid security fears after religious groups protested.
Tickets will be among the most expensive ever sold for a concert in Dubai, at AED495 ($131) for standard and AED2000 for VIP.
