6 things to do in Dubai this week



Biffy Clyro
Scottish rocker, Biffy Clyro are heading to Dubai this week for a one-off, intimate gig at the Hard Rock Café. The band have played in front of millions across sold out shows around the world and are known for their infectious and energetic sets that always keep the crowds bouncing. However, this slightly more personal performance will be unique and allow fans to experience the band like never before. It’s the outfits first time playing in the UAE so we’re expecting them to go big, regardless. Fans can look forward to tunes such as “Saturday Superhouse”, “Black Chandelier” and quite possibly, a rendition of Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams’s “Get Lucky” that they famously covered for BBC Radio One. Whatever happens, we’re sure to get a memorable night out of it.
