Elton John plays Dubai!
In a major coup for the city, Sir Elton John has been confirmed to play Dubai on Friday December 8 at the Autism Rocks Arena.
A living legend, the show is part of his Wonderful Crazy Night world tour and - amazingly - his first live show in Dubai. With over 5 decades of performing across the world, and more than 4000 gigs, he's one of the most accomplished live musicians in the world, and has the back catalogue to back it up having 38 gold releases and selling more than 300 million records.
He's won five Grammy Award and five Brit awards during his career, with tracks like 'Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me,' 'Don't Go Breaking My Heart,' and 'I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues' truly global hits.
Backed by his best-of-the-best backing band, his show for the 117Live group will no doubt be a highlight for many years to come, and tickets will go extremely quickly for the show at the Autism Rocks Arena, out by Dubai Outlet Mall. • Children under 15 need to be accompanied by an adult Free seating and seating is based on first come first serve. • Doors open 5:00Pm and show starts 09:30Pm.Read more

Elton John Live in Dubai Dec 11, 2017
the performance was heavenly. it transported one to a different place. the mood of the music matched the atmosphere of the dark breezy night. the performer instilled every inch of his inner soul into every note that he struck and every sound that he conveyed. having been to see him at 14 and now at 43 the passion i can say has only grown in him. i just hope he continues for our next generation and may be for his kids to enjoy his magic. More such art is what this world needs. well done dubai for hosting such performers.
