Chillout Productions has announced that American pop rock band One Republic will perform at the forthcoming Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival at Dubai Festival City on February 14, 2013.
“Today’s announcement marks an important milestone for the 2013 edition of the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival. One Republic are renowned for their extensive radio airplay on leading stations around the globe as well as their highly energetic performances that have rocked many stadiums and inspired music lovers the world-over,” said Anthony Younes, CEO, Chillout Productions.

In addition to the previously announced artists 3 Doors Down and Deep Purple, the One Republic performance will offer our fans from across the GCC an opportunity to indulge in musical delight as the award-winning pop rock ensemble is set to play countless hits from their extensive musical repertoire,” added Younes.
One Republic released a brand new hit in August this year, called Feel Again, and announced that an upcoming album will be launched soon. The band donated a large portion of the hit single’s proceeds to the Save the Children’s Every Beat Matters Campaign which aims to support training frontline health workers around the world.
“The appeal of One Republic goes beyond just making music. The band constantly strives to give back to the society and the Save the Children campaign is a testament to that fact,” Younes said.
One Republic’s current line-up consists of Ryan Tedder on vocals, Zach Filkins on guitar and backing vocals, Eddie Fisher on drums, Brent Kutzle on bass and cello, and Drew Brown on guitar.
The band’s confirmation as a headline act coincides with today’s launch of early bird ticket specials exclusively for MasterCard holders, Emirates Airline and Skywards members. Ticket sales for the general public will be announced soon.
