Reactions to the news have been mixed

So, here's something you don't hear every day.

Autsim Rocks Arena, one of Dubai's foremost concert spaces, is set to become a permanently dry venue starting this month, reports Gulf News.

Jennifer Lopez and Ed Sheeran's upcoming performances in the city will, as a result, be dry events.

Owners Al Ahli Holding Group (AAHG) made the following statement on the matter, “Judging by the attendees at the previous concerts and looking at the demographic of ticket buyers this year, it has become clear that music festivals and concerts attract an abundance of families, teens and children.”

Disappointed concert-goers can get in touch with concert organisers 117Live for refunds.
