Dubai: Global platinum-selling singer Katy Perry and Grammy Award-winning superstar Usher will perform live at the World Parachuting Championships Closing Ceremony in Dubai on December 8.

The event will take place at Meydan Racecourse and tickets, priced Dh450, go on sale at 12pm on Monday, October 30 at wpcconcert.ae

“I can’t wait to perform my first ever show for all my Middle East fans in Dubai,” said Perry who has cemented her status as a best-selling superstar with the global success of her second studio album, Teenage Dream, which debuted at number one in eight countries and has spent every week in Billboard’s Top 200 album sales chart since its release two years ago.

The World Parachuting Championships will come to a close on December 8 beginning with an awards ceremony and victory parade to celebrate the winners from the previous week, followed by a performance by Usher featuring all the hits from his 17-year career as well as from his current album, Looking 4 Myself, and ending with a live show from Perry.

While Usher has been to Dubai before, his sell-out concert at Dubai Media City still a talking point in the UAE, this will be Perry’s debut performance in the Middle East. “I’m excited to be returning to Dubai to perform for all my fans at the World Parachuting Championships,” said Usher.
