International pop sensation Mariah Carey and Emirati singer Hussain Al will perform in Dubai in several weeks to mark one year to go until Expo 2020 Dubai officially begins, it was announced on Monday.




The event will take place on Sunday, October 20, from 5pm until 10pm. A ‘countdown moment’ will take place at precisely 8:20pm – 20:20 – exactly 365 days from the event’s grand opening.

The 7,500-person concert will take place in the shadow of the Burj Khalifa at Burj Park in Downtown Dubai.

Additionally, the ‘One Year to Go’ concert will include a fireworks display and LED show on the Burj Khalifa, as well as an appearance by Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor.

“As we celebrate a momentous milestone in the journey on the journey to Expo 2020, there is an ever-growing sense of excitement and togetherness throughout the UAE,” said Najeeb Mohammed Al-Ali, the executive director of the Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau. “This will be reflected in the seven One Year to Go events around the emirates, showcasing the inclusive and collaborative spirit of the UAE.”

The tickets guarantee entry before 7pm. After that time, admission will be subject to the capacity of the venue.

Concert goers will receive a 25 percent discount if they enter the promo code ‘EXPO2020’ into the Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC) app.

Simultaneous activities are planned at the Louvre Abu Dhabi, Al Majaz Waterfront in Sharjah, Ajman Museum, Umm Al Quwain Corniche, Fujairah Fort and RAK’s Al Qawasim Corniche.

“Across the nation, people of all ages and backgrounds will enjoy an evening of unparalleled entertainment and excitement,” Al-Ali said. “We’re delighted to welcome two stellar musical acts to the Dubai stage with Mariah Carey and Hussain Al Jassmi.”



“The seven celebrations will not only wow everyone, they will also serve as a glimpse into why Expo 2020 will be the world’s greatest show,” he added.
