Could U2 be heading to the UAE?
It’s the question rock fans in the UAE have been asking for over a decade: when will U2 play here? Well, it could finally happen.
The head of Flash Entertainment John Lickrish told the National newspaper: “Bono has been to Abu Dhabi and I know the people he has met with. They are looking to play this region, because they haven’t done so before. It would be the worst kept secret in the world, if it does happen.”
Flash Entertainment is already, according to the paper, looking at the du Arena in Abu Dhabi as a possible venue. The Irish superstars completed in December their Innocence + Experience Tour.
U2 are arguable one of the world’s only mega-stars never to have performed in this country. Everyone else, including Rihanna, Madonna, Elton John and Sir Paul McCartney have taken to the UAE stage in the past few years.
Will it really happen? Time will tell..
Until then here's a video of what to expect...
