Justin Bieber is set to perform twice in Dubai next month due to overwhelming demand from fans of the teenage pop megastar.A second concert at the Dubai Sevens Stadium has been announced for Sunday May 5th, with Bieber already due to appear at the venue for his first ever performance in the Middle East on Saturday May 4th. Tickets for the first date sold out rapidly when they went on sale in September 2012.Promoter Done Events confirmed that the huge level of interest from fans in Dubai had made the second show a necessity."We are very excited that Justin Bieber has agreed to extend his Dubai stay by another day to help fulfil the dreams of more regional fans," said Thomas Ovesen, chief operating officer of Done Events."Adding a second show to his first ever Middle East visit gives Justin Bieber and our team another great opportunity to accommodate the huge demand from Middle East fans," he added.Tickets for the concert are now on sale, priced at AED 350 (£62). The 19-year-old Canadian singer is currently on the European leg of his Believe world tour, which is also due to reach venues in South Africa, China and North America.Confirmation of Bieber's second Dubai appearance in May was welcomed by Laila Suhail, chief executive of the Dubai Events and Promotions Establishment, who suggested the city's status as a major international concert venue is growing."2013 has begun with a series of high-profile acts performing in Dubai. Adding a second Justin Bieber concert is further demonstration of our reputation as a leading events destination," she said.Other music stars who have played live at venues in Dubai so far this year include legendary Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, reformed British band the Stone Roses and Band Aid founder Bob Geldof.
