February is set to be a huge month of music in Dubai, and it just got even bigger as American rapper Pitbull has just been announced for a gig in Dubai next month.

The Timber hitmaker will perform at the opening ceremony of the 2019 edition of the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) at 8pm on Thursday February 14 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Pitbull began releasing music in the early 2000s, but it wasn’t until his fourth album was released in 2009 that he received international acclaim. Pitbull went on to work with stars including Kesha, Jennifer Lopez and Ne-Yo releasing smash hit singles such as Give Me Everything, On The Floor and I Know You Want Me.

But he won’t be the only one. The opening ceremony of the annual cricket tournament will see Boney M star Marcia Barrett, as well as Pakistan superstar Fawad Khan and  Sufi-rock band Junoon also take to the stage to officially inaguarate the Pakistan Super League.

Tickets for the opening ceremony are now on sale, priced from Dhs40.
