Venue change: Dido to perform at the Coca-Cola Arena this December
The White Flag singer is currently on her first tour in 15 years…
British singer Dido, known for hits such as Thank You and Here With Me, is set to perform in Dubai later this year. The star is currently on a world tour of her fifth album, Still On My Mind.
And if you’ve already got tickets – or were planning to get them – take note: the venue has now changed. The final show of her tour will take place at Coca-Cola Arena on Friday December 13.
The concert was originally scheduled for Dubai Media City Amphitheatre but due to unsettled weather conditions it will now move indoors to the City Walk Arena.
Tickets are still available, priced from Dhs295.
Dido is most notably recognised for sampling Thank You for the first verse on Eminem’s hit song Stan, also playing his pregnant girlfriend in the video. The song was released in 2001 and struggled to reach an American audience until it was picked up by the rapper, when it reached number 3 in the Billboard chart.
Her brother Rollo, who produced the majority of her music, is one of the founding members and mastermind behind dance music legends, Faithless, a group she collaborated many times with. Dido has written lyrics and added vocals to many of the band’s songs including most recently, One Step Too Far.
She later has hits with her second studio album, Life for Rent. Most notably, the song White Flag, which reached number two in the UK chart, and 18 in the Billboard chart in 2003.
Earlier this year she released her newest album which is described as ‘electro-folk’ music. She began her tour in May – the first time she’s been on the road in 15 years. Already she has made her way around America, before soon visiting Mexico, Brazil, Europe and the UK later this year.
