Look who’s coming to burn it up in the UAE, again. Nine years after she first performed in Dubai, the multiple Grammy Award-winner Alicia Keys is heading back to the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on November 15.

Keys, who also performed in Abu Dhabi in 2008, began her Set the World on Fire Tour in March to promote her fifth album Girl on Fire, and will perform some of her greatest hits as well as songs from her new album. Girl on Fire went straight to the top of the Billboard albums chart on its debut last year with its first single, also of the same name, a chart success around the world.

The 32-year-old, who made one of the most impressive musical debuts with five Grammy Awards for her 2001 album Songs in A Minor, is today a celebrity powerhouse. She’s also a businesswoman, creative director, best-selling author, HIV/AIDS campaigner, mother and occasional actress.

“Having worked with Alicia Keys when she first visited the Middle East back in 2004 and after seeing her in concert when she performed in London a few weeks back, I can guarantee her many regional fans they will be in for, not only a fantastic show with all her many great hits, but in addition, will get to experience one of the absolute most talented stars around,” said Thomas Ovesen, Done Events COO.
