Coca-Cola Arena issued a statement last night about cancelling the event. Unofficial sources claim her band and crew are already in Dubai but the 47-year-old decided to back out from the gig because her doctor advised her to. She was making a return to the UAE after 15 years.

Event initially moved indoors due to weather concerns

Dido’s concert was supposed to take place at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on Friday, 13th December. However, with the winter season in full swing, organizers announced moving the event indoors at the Coca-Cola Arena. The organizers issued a statement saying:

“The change in venue is subject to some unforeseen weather changes and potential strong winds and rain on the day of the event.”
