Lady Gaga’s artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball is coming to Dubai . The pop star is known for her oft-outrageous stage antics, but organisers confirmed to Gulf News that her UAE show on September 10 at the Meydan Racecourse will be edited down for cultural reasons.
“There will be some edits for Dubai,” Marco Rios, the chairman and CEO of AMI Live, one of three companies involved with bringing Gaga to the UAE, told GN. “It cannot be the full show, because it wouldn’t be allowed. So it’s a special show for Dubai and for the culture.”
The Dubai date, which will “respect the local law”, was officially announced at a Monday morning press conference at the RIRA Gallery in DIFC.
Becky Artmonsky, CEO of ATW Live — the executive producers and promoters partially responsible for Jennifer Lopez at the Dubai World Cup — said that Gaga is willing to play nice to avoid cancellations. She doesn’t want a repeat of the ban that has been imposed on her live shows in Indonesia.
