If you didn’t get your tickets already, it looks like you’re too late…

It was one of the city’s biggest concert announcements for 2019, but if you were hoping to buy tickets for Maroon 5 in Dubai, you’re too late. Concert organiser Done Events took to social media on Tuesday evening to announce that the concert is now sold out.

Speculation began to mount earlier this year that Maroon 5 would be among the first acts to perform at the new Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai’s City Walk, and the news was confirmed in April. Maroon 5 will take to the stage on Friday June 14.

The band, lead by lead singer Adam Levine, will head to Dubai off the back of a 60-date world tour which began in South America in March 2018 and concludes in Europe on June 11, 2019.

When they return to Dubai later this year, they’ll be performing a string of their best-loved hits including She Will Be Loved, Moves Like Jagger and Sugar to the sold out arena.

It’s not the first time the group have performed in Dubai. They were previously here in April 2011, when they headlined a gig at Dubai World Trade Centre.

Their gig will be preceded only by famous funnyman Russell Peters, who will be the first star to take to the stage at the new arena on June 6. After that, the next confirmed gig is Irish group Westlife, who will bring their 20th anniversary tour to Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena on August 29.

Upon opening, Coca-Cola Arena will become the largest all-purpose, air-conditioned indoor arena in the Middle East with capacity to host up to 17,000 guests for a variety of events.  The venue will be managed by international operator AEG Ogden, who are also responsible for The O2 Arena in London.
