Janet Jackson to Close Out this Year’s Dubai World Cup
Nearly five years after she first performed there, singer Janet Jackson is set to return to the United Arab Emirates, this time to close out this year’s Dubai World Cup. If you’re like me and thought the DWC was similar to the FIFA World Cup, then you’d be wrong. The Dubai World Cup is actually a horse race, the richest in the world according to the event’s official website.
If you’re planning on swinging by the UAE to catch the concert, you’ll have to purchase tickets to the race first, as access to the performance is exclusive to day ticket holders of the annual event.
Janet released a statement via her Facebook page, calling it an “honor to be asked to perform at such a prestigious event.”
Janet has called Dubai home for several years now, having lived there with husband Wissam al Mana since 2010.
