Andrea Bocelli to headline Expo 2020 Dubai opening ceremony

Expo 2020 Dubai is set to open in some style with the Grammy-nominated opera singer Andrea Bocelli headlining the opening ceremony.

Bocelli has sold over 75 million records including Romanza which is one of the best-selling albums of all time.

He is one of the most famous opera singers in the world. And all the more amazing considering he became fully blind aged just 12.

The big names don’t stop there, however.

Bocelli will be joined at the Expo opening by Golden Globe-winning actress and singer Andra Day and UK star Ellie Goulding.

They’re joined by ridiculously talented pianist Lang Lang and four-time Grammy-winner Angelique Kidjo.

There are also a wide number of Arab artists on the bill.

They include Mohamed Abdo, and Emirati star ‘Fananat Al Arab’ Ahlam Alshamsi. They’ll be joined by Expo 2020 Dubai Ambassador Hussain Al Jassmi and Grammy-nominated Lebanese-American singer Mayssa Karaa.

The Expo 2020 Dubai opening ceremony will be held at Al Wasl Plaza. And will take place on Thursday September 30.

Don’t worry if you don’t have one of the golden tickets to be there in person!

The opening ceremony will be broadcast live on Expo TV.
