The singer will take to the stage at Global Village.

Get excited, Directioners – former One Direction star Liam Payne is headed for Dubai.

2017 was a big year for Payne – it saw him release his first single as a solo artist. Strip That Down (which he co-wrote with Ed Sheeran) peaked at no. 3 on the UK Singles Chart and no. 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

Payne also collaborated with Rita Ora on the single For You, which featured in the soundtrack of the film Fifty Shades Freed.

Besides his singing career, Payne is an active member of several charities that aim to empower children and young adults. He is a keen supporter of UNICEF, an ambassador for Trekstock, and Comic Relief.

Payne last played in Dubai with One Direction in April 2015.
