Dubai has announced its first big star studded New Year Celebrations Eve bash. This time it will be a spectacular disco featuring some famous celebrities from Hollywood. The theme for the New Year Celebrations eve bash was decided by the organizers. According to the sources, the concert is dedicated to the 70s and 80s. The Jacksons will headline a glittering eight-hour epic MasterJam show in the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre.
The star-studded bill also includes Chaka Khan, Chic and Nile Rodgers, Gloria Gaynor, Jocelyn Brown, Kathy Sledge and Incognito.
The artists will take the stage to perform their best-loved hits in what is sure to be a long night full of genre-defining tunes for New Year Celebrations .
The evening is set to be a trip down memory lane not only for the audience but also for the artists. Disco queen Gloria Gaynor reportedly performed in Dubai in 1980 when her monster hit I Will Survive was only one year old.
American soul diva Chaka Khan performed in the UAE in 1993 to promote the Grammy award-winning album The Woman I Am, which included hits such as the chart-topping Love You All My Lifetime.
Other acts are returning to the country after shorter breaks – those who attended last year’s November edition of Sandance will know the party atmosphere Chic and Nile Rodgers can conjure up with an effervescent set featuring disco-tastic tracks Everybody Dance and Le Freak.
Motown fans, meanwhile, will have another chance to groove along to The Jacksons (featuring Jermaine, Jackie, Tito and Marlon) as they perform five decades-worth of hits including I Want You Back and ABC.
As in their 2012 show at Abu Dhabi’s Du Forum, look out for the staple of their show – a stirring musical tribute to their late brother, King of Pop Michael Jackson.
The concert will kick start at 6pm sharp on December 31. From 20th November, the tickets for the concert will be available and the entry fee will be 295 Dirhams for the New Year Celebrations.
