The Irish Village has announced a trio of gigs throughout March and April, with English rock group Busted, beloved boy band Boyzone and Scottish duo The Proclaimers set to perform.

Excitingly, if you book before January 23, you also get the chance to win a meet-and-greet with the band you're going to see, as well as Dh500 credit to use on food and beverage at The Irish Village.

Busted

The first to perform will be the English rock band Busted. James Bourne, Matt Willis and Charlie Simpson are heading to the UAE for a gig on Thursday, March 14, from 9pm to 11pm. It'll be just six weeks after they release their brand-new fourth album Half Way There. The performance also happens to coincide with St Patrick's Day weekend.

Expect to hear some new songs, as well as some classics, such as Year 3000, What I Go to School For and Who's David.

Ticket prices start from Dh175 and it's open to adults aged 21 and above.

Boyzone

Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham, Ronan Keating and Shane Lynch have added Dubai to the list of cities they'll hit during their current and final tour, Thank You & Goodnight. The foursome will perform at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium on Friday, April 12.

"When we started out as five young Dublin Northsiders, eager to face the world, we never imagined that we'd still have an army of fans some 25 years later," the band has written in a letter to its fans on its official website.

"We're certainly not boys anymore, and we all feel that we should now call time on our lives together as Boyzone and go out on a real high."

In November, Boyzone released their final album (Thank You & Goodnight) and recorded 12 new tracks, including a special tribute to late band member Stephen Gately.

This means, the Dubai gig might be the last chance you get to watch the band live.

Ticket prices start from Dh195 and it's open to adults aged 21 and above.
