Just in case the world’s richest horse race isn’t enough to entice you to Meydan for the Dubai World Cup on March 30, organisers have now confirmed that Gwen Stefani will be performing in the evening. No Doubt that will convince you.

Following in the footsteps of Jennifer Lopez and Kylie Minogue, Stefani, a three-time Grammy Award-winner and the voice behind hit songs such as Hollaback Girl and Wind It Up, will entertain the crowds after the final race.

“I am really excited to perform at the Dubai World Cup,” the American singer said. “Dubai is such a beautiful city and I look forward to experiencing and being part of this prestigious event.”

From 1986-2004, Stefani was in the band No Doubt, whose third album, Tragic Kingdom, sold more than 16 million copies worldwide. As a solo artist, she has released four albums, including Love. Angel. Music. Baby. and This is What the Truth Feels Like.

Stefani is currently partway through a residency in Las Vegas, where she is performing her concert Gwen Stefani: Just a Girl.

Stefani performed a private show at the 2017 launch of the Renaissance Downtown Hotel. Writing about the event, The National's Saeed Saeed said: "From the bubble gum ska-pop of I’m Just A Girl to the brilliant electro-pop of What You Are Waiting For? and Hella Good, it is remarkable how much of Stefani’s catalogue sounds so fresh and vital today."

Stefani’s performance will take place on the Apron Views stage from 9.30pm. Only Dubai World Cup ticket holders will have access to the concert.
