The Aussie singer-songwriter and rapper will headline at The Coca-Cola Arena in December…

Australian singer-songwriter and rapper, and Justin Bieber protege, The Kid Laroi is set to perform in Dubai for the first time.

Fresh from announcing his long-awaited album, The First Time, will drop in November, The Kid Laroi will perform at the Coca-Cola Arena on Friday December 8.

Tickets are on sale now, priced from Dhs195.

Despite being just 20 years old, The Kid Laroi (real name Charlton Kenneth Jeffrey Howard) has enjoyed massive success in the music scene over the last three years. He released his debut mixtape in 2020 to critical acclaim in his native Australia, dropping a string of hits that year including So Done and Without You. Then in 2021, his single with friend and mentor Justin Bieber, Stay, saw The Kid Laroi become a name to know in mainstream music.

Several top 10 hits followed, including the emotive Thousand Miles in 2022 and Love Again in 2023.

When he performs at the Coca-Cola Arena this December, fans can expect to hear all these tracks from the Aussie music star, plus hopefully some new material from his debut album, The First Time.
