American singer Jennifer Lopez is returning to Dubai for a concert at the Autism Rocks Arena.

Lopez, who last visited Dubai back in 2014 for the Dubai World Cup, is coming back on Friday November 17 for a concert at the 30,000 capacity, open-air arena.

Ed Sheeran also plays at the same venue a week later, Thursday November 23, for his sell-out concert.

Lopez is famous for her spectacular shows, Latin American glamour, various costume changes and full-throttle dance performances, as well as string of hit singles released across her near 20-year pop career.

“We’ve had Guns N’ Roses when people came out to see the original line up, and Justin Bieber who’s topped the charts,” said Thomas Ovesen, CEO of 117Live.

“But talents like Jennifer Lopez are more than just musicians or the host of a popular TV talent show. She’s just a major, major celebrity who brings positivity and a feel-good factor.

“I don’t think you’ll find anyone who says they hate her music, everyone can nod along and enjoy her music, and she’s simply a fabulous, fabulous performer. Her gig will be a wonderful party, a fiesta, and this serves as a mark in the calendar. On the November 17, there’s a massive party in town, and it will be a show for the whole family to enjoy.

“Just like with Ed Sheeran, there will not be a second show for Jennifer Lopez. This is it, so if you want to go then register now to be invited for the pre-sale.”

Similar to the release of Ed Sheeran tickets in May, tickets will be available at first to fans who register for the pre-sale.

By registering, you’ll be sent a link to the pre-sale event well before general release. The vast majority of tickets for Sheeran’s visit sold before general release. Pre-register now at
