Zayn Malik Finally Has His First Solo Headline Gig, Everyone
But where is it?
It’s been approximately 422 days since Zayn Malik announced that he was leaving One Direction (SORRY) and finally, FINALLY, his first ever solo headline gig has been announced.
Except there’s a catch, because it’s actually way across the pond in Dubai.
Question: Who fancies buying someone else a trip to Dubai? Asking for a friend.
Having played the odd show here and there, Zayn is finally embarking on the challenging but seriously exciting job of headlining his very own show on 7th October at the new Autism Rocks Arena.
Having a chat about the exciting gig, promoter Thomas Ovesen told Gulf News: “This is basically the first announced public show for Zayn. Of course there’s an awful lot to come after that, but I think we’ll allow him to announce his plans. We’re just excited that we get to break the news of this first show and the only show in the region with Zayn.”
If that’s not enough excitement to take your fondant fancy, Thomas teased a big ol’ production for Zayn, adding: “I haven’t attended the rehearsals. I just know, based on the budget that we are putting aside for the production, that it will be a fantastic show. I myself will probably not get a full idea of the visuals and the set-up until a few months before the show.
“We’ve been talking to his people solidly, I would say, for at least the last six months about when he would be able to do any live shows. It’s been in the making for quite some time.”
Our excitement levels have just hit a new high. Bring on more shows, Zayn!
