Ahlan! can exclusively report that after months of anticipation Ke$ha has officially pulled out of RedFestDXB, and will be replaced by Brit favourite Jessie J.
Ke$ha is under doctor's orders to remain committed to her ongoing treatment and will not be able to perform her much anticipated headline set at the RedFestDXB festival on Thursday 13th February. Ke$ha said: “I was so looking forward to performing at RedFestDXB but I need to follow my Doctor's advice and get my health back on track. Your support during this time has been so amazing and I look forward to coming back stronger than ever on the next tour."
Thomas Ovesen, Chief Operating Officer of Done Events said: "We applaud Ke$ha and her dedication to getting better and we hope to see Ke$ha back on stage soon and hopefully performing with us in Dubai”. Ovesen added: “But there is also good news as we are extremely pleased to announce that superstar and chart topper Jessie J will bring her fantastic live show to RedFestDXB, now performing a Thursday night headlining set to replace Ke$ha”.
Jessie J will join Conor Maynard and Tinie Tempah as a part of Thursday’s line-up. Friday’s line up remains un-changed.
Jessie J said: “Wow! When I got the call, I said yes immediately, I love Dubai. I cannot wait to perform a headline set at RedFestDXB for all my Middle East fans. I wish Ke$ha a speedy recovery.”
