The legendary Irish musician. who will be performing a selection of his solo and Boomtown Rats classic hits, is appearing in Dubai courtesy of the Transguard Group.
Geldof is no stranger to the UAE, having made the place his home for St Paddy's over the last decade.; “I have been coming to Dubai for the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations since 2006, so this will be my ninth visit. Having the gig on Friday the 13th doesn’t phase me in the slightest. Last year, although the rain was ‘persistent’, we still managed to jam into the early hours courtesy of a makeshift stage and plenty of Irish spirit. So whatever the weather, this year is going to be a great craic as well,” said Geldof.
