Dido to perform in Dubai this December

By

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.

It seems the artist saved the best for last, as her final show will be at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on Friday December 13.

Tickets go on sale at 12pm today (Monday September 2), available from ae.bookmyshow.com and prices start 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.
