It’s thought that the American pop-rock group will open the stunning new Dubai Arena in City Walk later this year…

Done Events have announced that Grammy award-winning pop-rock group Maroon 5 will return to Dubai for the first time since 2011.

Although a date and location for the gig have not been given, it’s widely thought that the This Love hitmakers will open Dubai Arena in City Walk in June.

It’s been a big couple of years for Maroon 5, who headlined the prestigious NFL Super Bowl half time show in February 2019. The group also recently collaborated with rapper Cardi B on the 2018 smash, Girls Like You, which topped the US Billboard charts and has so far had more than two billion plays on YouTube.

 

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, fans can expect to hear a string of their best-loved hits including She Will Be Loved, Moves Like Jagger and Sugar.

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.

Although not yet confirmed, the venue is widely thought to be Dubai Arena, the new indoor venue at City Walk.

Upon opening, Dubai 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.

As well as concerts and festivals, conferences and exhibitions, Dubai Arena is expected to host sporting events such as basketball, boxing, volleyball, and ice hockey.

While Maroon 5 may be first, we can’t wait to see what else Dubai Arena welcomes later in the year.
