British artist Dido is set to make her maiden appearance in Dubai in December.
After a 15-year absence from the touring scene, the singer is scheduled to hit the stage at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on Friday, December 13 to round off her ‘Still on my mind’ comeback tour.
Her world tour started in Prague in May this year and Dido is playing a host of venues throughout South America and Europe in November ahead of her December date in Dubai.
The concert has been organised by Mission Control X. Marketing manager Aleksandra Gorokhova, said: “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.”
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.
