The Spanish mega star is all set to make a grand return to the Middle East…

Last week we put on our detective badge and went full Dr. Whatson on the subject of who Coca-Cola Arena’s next big booking was. The entertainment venue shared a teaser silhouette of a famous singer on their social media channels and invited us to guess who it might be. So we did.

This was not our first armchair sleuth rodeo – and it appears our prime suspect, Mr Enrique Iglesias – was indeed the man behind the shadowy mask. The Coca-Cola Arena confirmed the news this morning, the Spanish star will be returning to Dubai for a one-night gig, at the Arena on September 13.

Enrique is one of the most listened-to artists of all time with a collective stream count of 40 billion across all platforms. Known for emotional ballads and seductive Latin dance tracks, his best known hits are probably “Hero” where he claims his embrace has anesthetic properties; “Bailando” which literally translates as ‘dancing’; as well as “Escape” and “Tonight”. Maybe we should check in on him whilst he’s here.

He’s performed in Dubai several times in the past, most recently a New Year’s Eve party at Nammos in 2022/23 and a hugely memorable concert at soon-to-be farewell-ed, floating venue The Pointe in 2018.
