The songstress is lined up to perform at Palm Jumeirah’s state-of-the-art new venue, the Pointe.
The show will begin at 8pm, after a warm-up DJ set starting at 6:30pm. Expect hits like ‘Maktooba Leek’ and ‘Nefsi Aollo’ from her latest album, 'Ila Kol Elli Bihebbouni'.
The last time Elissa was in Dubai, she not only gave a memorable concert at Global Village, but also attended the Dubai Health Forum and opened up about her battle with breast cancer. It was a condition she kept secret for months, revealing details of the ordeal publicly for the first time in her in the music video for the song 'Ila Kol Elli Bihebbouni'.
The courageous and inspiring popstar made it clear that she never let the diagnosis be a hindrance to her career, continuing to record new music and perform for fans during the course of her radiotherapy treatment. The heart-wrenching music video for 'Ila Kol Elli Bihebbouni' featured real-life audio and visual clips of her radiotherapy sessions and conversations with her closest family and friends, provoking a widespread outburst of support, encouragement and well-wishes, from the Arab music industry and beyond.
Having overcome breast cancer, the award-winning artist is stronger than ever, now admirably lending her voice to promoting the early detection of the condition and encouraging women to get tested. She returns to Dubai for a free concert on 5 April to give back to the fans who showed her unwavering support.
Elissa is the latest star to perform as part of the series of live, al fresco concerts by regional and international artists alike (Enrique Iglesias delivered the venue’s inaugural concert and Wael Kfoury gave a performance in February) at the Palm’s new retail and entertainment destination.
