Pop legend Prince is to perform an exclusive invite-only gig in the UAE this week.

The 56-year-old will play a special concert at Pacha Ibiza Dubai on Wednesday, February 4, in aid of UAE-based charity Autism Rocks, The National reported.

The music star performed to thousands at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in 2010, but tomorrow’s event will be substantially more intimate as Pacha’s total capacity is less than 2,000.

Fans can buy tickets to the standing room only event for $100 (AED367) each but many outlets are already sold out.

Prince supported Autism Rocks in Paris and London last year. He also did a similar fundraiser at London’s Koko last night.

He will be backed at both gigs by his band 3rdeyegirl.
