At the world’s most expensive day of horseracing, the Dubai World Cup, even if you aren't a particularly huge fan of the races - you're in luck when it comes to entertainment. It was just announced that U.S. pop singer Gwen Stefani will be performing on the day of the event, 30 March.
The multi-award-winning artist is set to close the sporting and social event, taking the stage at 9:30pm. This will mark her first public concert in the UAE; according to Time Out Dubai, she has performed in the nation once before at a VIP event in 2017, held at Dubai's Renaissance Downtown Hotel.
According to Gulf News, she said in a statement that “coming to somewhere like Dubai where all the cultures are coming together” is “a dream” and the city is a place she “could never [have] imagined” visiting.
