The ‘Losing Control’ hitmaker will perform at Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena for the first time next year…

American rapper, singer and record producer Russ is set to make his return to Dubai in 2020.

The hitmaker behind tracks including Losing Control and What They Want will perform at Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena for the first time on Friday March 27.

Tickets are available now, priced from Dhs250.

Next year’s gig will be the second time Russ has performed in Dubai, following on from his debut UAE performance at RedFest DXB in 2018.

The 27-year-old rapper has released 13 studio albums to date and saw his twelfth studio album, There’s Really A Wolf, certified platinum.

It’s already shaping up to be a big year of musical stars making their way to the UAE in 2020.

In January, Lewis Capaldi will play his first UAE gig at the Al Majaz Amphitheatre in Sharjah, followed by a performance by 80s pop stars a-ha at Dubai Opera in February.

Later that month, Lauryn Hill, Lionel Richie and One Republic will all headline the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival, bringing three days of brilliant music to Dubai Media City Amphitheatre.

After Russ’ performance in March, the Coca-Cola Arena will also see former One Direction star Louis Tomlinson bring his solo tour to the arena in April, and heavy metal icons Iron Maiden headline in May.
