Bruno Mars and Paloma Faith to perform in Dubai

Dubai is set to host yet another live music extravaganza today (April 12th) when Bruno Mars and Paloma Faith take to the stage at the Media City Amphitheatre.The emirate continues to attract the biggest names in the industry and it seems that barely a week goes by without a renowned performer putting on a show in the Gulf.Mars is a singer-songwriter from the US and he has developed a very distinctive sound. It is hard to pigeonhole the 27-year-old in one particular genre, as his songs have reggae, blues, funk and Motown influences.He has amassed a sizeable fanbase in recent years and his legions of followers in the UAE will be delighted that he is set to appear live.The talented performer will be joined on the bill by eccentric British songstress Paloma Faith, Gulf News reports.Faith - who is also 27 - is renowned for songs such as Stone Cold Sober and New York, in which she demonstrates her incredible vocal range. The singer is also known for her whacky dresses and cute British charm.She has received praise from a number of top-class international performers in recent years, including Annie Lennox.Having two acclaimed acts on the same concert lineup is obviously a major boost for Dubai's credentials as a musical hotspot.Most performers are primarily attracted to the city because of the huge sums of money that are available and of course the stunning array of five-star hotels, gorgeous beaches and myriad designer boutiques also help to sweeten the deal.Justin Bieber is expected to appear in the emirate on May 4th and it is hard to think of too many bigger acts in the world at the moment.The likes of Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, The Stone Roses and Noel Gallagher have all taken to the stage in the UAE in the recent past, which further demonstrates the country's ability to lure the creme de la creme of the music business.
