Iron Maiden and Louis Tomlinson coming to Dubai

Iron Maiden and Louis Tomlinson are coming to Dubai for shows at the Coca-Cola Arena next year according to their GM.

Iron Maiden and Louis Tomlinson were previously confirmed to come to Dubai. But due to the Covid-19 pandemic, those shows had to be cancelled. And things got even more complicated for Iron Maiden, as their new world tour also clashed with new dates.

But the Coca Cola Arena’s new GM Mark Jan Kar told The National that they’re both coming next year.

“We are very close to securing them for a new date in 2022.”

“When it comes to the big picture, I feel confident in saying that we will start to see big names returning in the second half of 2022 as part of world tours,” he says.

“At the moment, we are seeking out opportunities in the (fourth quarter) of 2021 and the first part of 2022 for acts to perform in the arena but not as part of a world tour.”

UK comic Russell Kane announces Dubai date

There are several big events happening before that, you’ll be pleased to hear.

Quick thinking, fast-talking UK comic Russell Kane has announced he’s returning to Dubai for the first time in four years.

And if you’re a fan of Russell Kane and his fast-firing comedy, keep Wednesday, September 29 free as he’ll be playing at the Dubai Opera.

The UK comic has been a mainstay on the comedy circuit for over a decade. He’s got dozens of TV appearances behind him including hosting the BBC’s Stupid Man and Smart Phone.

But he’s probably best known for his social media videos and podcasts that often go viral.

Virtually no topic is off-limits for him. And thanks to his energetic style, incredible facial expressions and deadpan delivery, he knocks it out of the park every time.
