Two years after cancelling his last scheduled UAE gig — Avicii is finally coming back to town.
The globetrotting EDM sensation will perform at Dubai World Trade Centre on April 1 — but we are assured the news is no April’s fool.
Good things clearly do come to those who wait, with the show falling almost exactly 24 months since the Swedish star was forced to pull out of a gig at Nasimi Beach in October 2012, after undergoing emergency surgery to remove his gall bladder and appendix.
The announcement comes after Avicii, whose real name is Tim Bergling, pledged he would make up for the cancelled gig when we caught up with him backstage at Morocco’s Mawazine Festival last summer.
One of the hottest EDM concert draws on the planet, the 26-year-old DJ currently sits at number seven on DJ Mag‘s Top 100 poll with cross over hits including Hey Brother, Wake Me Up and Levels.
The 10,000-capacity concert will take place at the newly built Zabeel Halls 4 and 5.
