The city’s newest culture hotspot isn’t just about operas and long-running musicals – it’s also booking some renowned global pop stars.

Dubai Opera has announced that BRIT Award-winning singer-songwriter James Morrison will perform at the venue on October 7.

The UK crooner rose to fame in 2006 with his debut single You Give Me Something, which hit the top 10 in countries around the world.

Morrison has released four albums over his 10-year career, and is also known for tracks including Wonderful World, The Pieces Don’t Fit Anymore, and Broken Strings (a duet with Nelly Furtado).
