The Australian pop powerhouse, Sia, is all set to perform at the world’s richest horse race, Dubai World Cup, on March 25. Last year Janet Jackson took to the stage in Dubai to perform a storming concert at Meydan Racecourse and in this year the “Cheap Thrills” singer will headline the horse racing carnival.
This will be the first time, the 41-year-old, who sprang to prominence with her 2014 hit Chandelier, will play the prestigious set in the UAE. Sia will go live onstage at around 11.00pm IST to close the richest race day on Earth, The Dubai World Cup.
“Sia is thrilled to be performing at the Dubai World Cup at Meydan, being a part of such a prestigious occasion and for her fans to see her show in the UAE for the first time,” a spokesperson said about the news.
Sia, is perhaps best known for her hit song Chandelier, which smashed the music charts in 2014 and put the platinum blonde on the map. Aside from being a pop star, she is also a prolific songwriter, having penned hits for many high-profile artists. Among these are ‘’Pretty Hurts’’ with Beyonce, ‘’ Titantium’’ with David Guetta, ‘’Wild One’’ with Flo Rida, and ‘’ Diamonds’’ with Rihanna.
The biggest social and sporting event on the UAE calendar, ticket holders will gain access to the nine horse races that make up Dubai World Cup day, the spectacular Dubai World Cup show and fireworks display as well as the electrifying Sia’s concert.
