The concert backs Artpop, the multiplatinum-selling artist’s third studio album that was released in November. The album debuted at No 1 on the US Billboard 200.
So far, more than 775,000 tickets have been sold for shows at other cities on the tour – Gaga’s first after an injury forced her to abruptly cancel her Born This Way Ball tour last year.
The Dubai concert is organised by AMI Live, ATW Live and Live National Global Touring. Marco Rios, the chairman and chief executive of AMI Live, which has newly established a base in the UAE, says Lady Gaga was an ideal first show: “[She is] a performer with influences from diverse cultures, who is contemporary, dynamic, inclusive and a headline-maker.”
