An Adele concert in Dubai may be a far off dream, but this week you'll get to see a performance of sorts from the superstar in Downtown Dubai.

At 8pm every weekday, and 10pm on weekends until Saturday March 31, the Burj Khalifa's 'Light Up Dubai' laser and sound show will revolve entirely around the 29-year-old singer's 2012 hit Skyfall, which she wrote for the James Bond movie of the same name.

The song won the Academy Award, Golden Globe and Critic's Choice Award for best original song.

The week-long Burj Khalifa Adele homage will be the final 'Light Up' show. The 'Light Up' shows take advantage of a new LED panel installed on the world's tallest building, and there has been one every night since New Year's Eve. Adele's Skyfall will be your final chance to see a 'Light Up' show - for the near future, at least.

The Skyfall 'Light Up' show will reach the tip of the Burj Khalifa's spire - at 828-metres tall.

The show will be free to watch, but expect crowds.
