British rapper and grime star Stormzy has announced plans to play Dubai for the first time as part of a world tour in 2020.
The Glastonbury 2019 headliner will appear in Dubai on Friday February 7, although no venue has yet been revealed.
Dubai will be the first stop on the artist’s Heavy Is the Head Tour, according to a tweet from the artist’s account.
Stops on the global tour, which runs until October 10, also include Shanghai, Seoul, New York, Sydney, Cape Town, Lagos and Berlin.
The 26-year-old Londoner found fame for his 2015 hit Shut Up, and has since gone on to win a string of accolades including MOBO and Brit Awards.
His debut album, Gang Signs & Prayers, released in 2017, was the first grime album to reach number one in the UK albums chart.
