Kylie Minogue to headline Dubai Rugby Sevens

DUBAI, June 13, 2019

International pop star Kylie Minogue has been confirmed to perform at this year’s Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens, as the largest sporting and social event in Dubai celebrates its 50th anniversary with an evening concert on December 6.
Taking place at The Sevens Stadium, the Grammy Award-winning superstar will take to the stage at 9.30 pm to perform a series of hits from her 30-year career.
For only Dh400 to attend on Friday or Dh500 for the entire weekend, fans can enjoy a 50th-anniversary extravaganza, which will be bigger and better and full of celebratory events, on top of a performance by this world-renowned icon on Friday night. Tickets are available on the Dubai Rugby Sevens website.
Gary Chapman, president group services and dnata, Emirates Group, said: “As the longest running sports event in the Middle East, we want all our fans to celebrate our 50-year milestone in style. As well as three days of the best Rugby Sevens in the world, plenty of family and kids’ activities and hospitality, we’re incredibly excited to bring one of the most successful artists in history to the stage."
"The Dubai Rugby Sevens is the biggest party of the year and Kylie Minogue is one of Billboard’s top dance artists of all time with 80 million albums sold. We couldn’t think of a better entertainer to get the party going as we celebrate 50 years of this fantastic event,” Chapman added.
Minogue said: “I’m really excited to be coming back to Dubai and to take part in this amazing event!”
From what started 50 years ago with a small group of British expats at the Dubai Exiles RFC, the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens has grown into one of the world’s premier sporting events, hosting the first leg of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series and the second leg of the HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series. It also plays host to an ever-popular and growing international Invitation Tournament, featuring rugby and netball teams from all over the world, with over 300 teams participating across all age groups.
This year’s Dubai Rugby Sevens is expected to be another thrilling weekend with free entry for all ages on Thursday and free entry all weekend for those under 12 with plenty to keep everyone entertained. 
Taking place from December 5 to December 7 at The Sevens Stadium, on the Al Ain Road, fans can now purchase their tickets online. Travel packages for international visitors are also available and can be viewed on the Dubai Rugby Sevens website. - TradeArabia News Service
