UK pop star Seal has been revealed as the man who will bring the Dubai World Cup event to a close on March 30.
Organisers have announced that the Dubai World Cup will conclude with a special solo performance by the highly-acclaimed international recording sensation.
Earlier this month, US pop star Anastacia was forced to pull out of her planned concert at the Dubai World Cup after being diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time.
The singer successfully survived her 2003 battle with the disease which has returned and forced her to cancel all performances, tours and any travel from now until further notice.
The nine-race Dubai World Cup programme is the richest race day in the world and carries a combined prize purse of more than $27m.
Seal, who has global album sales of more than 20 million, shot to fame in 1990 with Killer which reached number 1 in the UK charts, followed by Crazy in 1991 which earned him international recognition.
Seal stole the show in 1992 at the Brit Awards held at the Hammersmith Odeon, London, with the first hat-trick of wins in the history of the event.
Frank Gabriel, CEO for Dubai Racing Club, organiser of the racing season at Meydan said: “The Dubai World Cup presents our 80,000 guests with a full day and night of unmissable racing excitement and entertainment.
"We are delighted to celebrate this as one of the most memorable events in the sporting and social calendar, and to welcome such an internationally acclaimed artist as Seal to perform live in concert.”
Ticket prices begin at AED350 for Apron Views, allowing guests access to the full day of racing from 2pm and to the Seal Live Concert which will begin after the running of the final race and trophy presentations.
The action gets underway at 4.30pm with the Purebred Arabian Group 1 Dubai Kahayla Classic, sponsored by Emaar, and comes to a close following the eighteenth running of the $10m Dubai World Cup at 10:05pm, sponsored by Emirates Airline.
