No need to get Jealous, the pop superstar is finally coming to our shores…
Last year’s Fiesta De Los Muertos was headlined by Joe Jonas’ band DNCE – and the festival are definitely keeping it in the family for 2017.
Younger brother Nick Jonas will take to the stage at the October 27 gig, held at Dubai’s Autism Rocks Arena – and it’ll mark the star’s first performance in the Middle East.
The 24-year-old, who rose to fame performing as a trio with his two brothers, has been bringing out solo hit after solo hit since 2014.
Our particular favourite has to be this one:
But you’ll also know double-platinum smash Jealous, Chains, Bom Bidi Bom, Remember I Told You and more.
And while you might recognise him mostly from his music videos and live performances, the multi-talented Jonas has also appeared on Broadway and been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
(He’s also set to appear in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson).
“I’m looking forward to Fiesta and to bringing a great show to Dubai for my first performance in the Middle East,” the singer-songwriter said ahead of the Halloween-themed October show.
Jonas will co-headline the festival with British virtual band Gorillaz – yes, the one created by Blur frontman Damon Albarn and comic book artist Jamie Hewlett.
The Clint Eastwood hitmakers’ performances often use projections of the animated four-piece band, although sometimes real-life members do appear on stage.
Also performing on the night is Lebanese-Canadian R&B singer Massari, and The Mariachis, a band which perform pop classic with a Mexican twist.
