Lady Gaga’s Dubai concert has been confirmed for September

Rumours surfaced on social media weeks ago that the ‘Born This Way’ singer was coming to the UAE, but Gaga is now confirmed to perform at Meydan Racecourse on September 10, in what will be her first ever appearance in the Middle East to kick off her ‘artRAVE’ European tour.

Tickets are going on sale on Thursday May 15 at noon, on, with prices starting at Dhs495 for General Admission. Tickets for those in Gaga’s fan club ‘Little Monsters’ go on sale from Tuesday May 13. VIP packages are priced at Dhs1,995.

Becky Artmonsky, co-founder and CEO ATW Live, the show’s organisers, said Gaga has been “very keen” on performing in the Middle East and therefore “understands” the culturual sensitivies that play a part in order to perform here. Artmonsky said: “This is probably going to be the biggest show in Dubai so far.”

Marco Rios, the chairman and CEO of AMI Live – the company that signed Lady Gaga and are bringing her to Dubai, said the Middle East market for entertainment has “increased a lot” in the past five years. “UAE is the perfect place to bring Lady Gaga as she has so many fans here too.”
