DUBAI: US rapper 50 Cent is set to return to the UAE in September to perform at Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena.
As part of his Green Light Gang World Tour, the Grammy-winning singer, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, will meet his fans on Sept. 30.
Thomas Ovesen, the owner of TOP Entertainment and the tour’s promoter, said in a released statement: “We are delighted to be bringing what can only be described as rap royalty to the Coca-Cola Arena this September.”
“Curtis ‘50 Cent’ Jackson is a pioneer in the industry and continues to reinvent himself year on year. Having seen the show myself this summer in Europe, I can tell you his fans are in for a real treat,” Ovesen added. “The tour is selling out record numbers across Europe and his performance here will be his biggest in the region to date.”
Tickets will be available for pre-sale on July 12 at 9 a.m. (Saudi time), while the general tickets will be sold on July 13 at 9 a.m. (Saudi time).
The rapper, famous for his hits “Candy Shop” and “I’m the Man,” is performing the weekend before Canadian superstar Justin Bieber hits the Coca-Cola Arena stage.
