Every gig in Dubai seems like either a has-been tour or a second rate artist, do any of the bigger bands ever play Dubai?

apologies to moby,shakira and joe cocker fans

I'm not a fan but"Shakira" as borrowred from Wiki....

Two Grammy Awards, seven Latin Grammy Awards, twelve Billboard Latin Music Awards and has been Golden Globe-nominated. She is the highest-selling Colombian artist of all time, and the second most successful female Latin singer after Gloria Estefan, having sold over 70 million albums worldwide according to Sony Music Entertainment. Her U.S. album sales stand at 10 million.

In the fall of 2009, Shakira released her sixth album She Wolf worldwide. Shakira's "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)", was chosen as the official song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.... and became the biggest selling World Cup song of all time. On YouTube, the English version of the music video was the 3rd most watched video of all time with over 300 million views Her seventh studio album, the bilingual Sale el Sol, was released October 2010 and has shipped over 4 million copies worldwide....


Woudln't rush to see her myself but think she rates a bit above "has-been" or "second rate artist" ...

Aha well thanks for the information but I suppose I was relating second rate artist to the calibre of the music; if album sales equalled quality then I guess I would look at the like of Meat Loaf as a latter day Beethoven.

Most of the better gigs appear to be at Abu Dhabi these days and at Yas Island in particular, although Faithless, Rod Stewart, Shakira are all major artists who have appeared in Dubai recently. Also, Maroon Five and West Life are appearing here this month.

He played at the Dubai Sevens venue last year I believe. Correct me if I'm wrong. Also George Michael appeared at Abu Dhabi.

Rodders played last year after the Rugby 7's with Spandeau Ballet as support act who, in my honest humble opinion were far better than Rod. I fell asleep during his performance.
