DUBAI: Following news that Maroon 5 are set to perform in Abu Dhabi for the first time, the US pop rock group will host a much-awaited gig in Egypt in May.
The Grammy award-winning band, led by vocalist Adam Levine, will meet their fans at the Giza Pyramids on May 3.
The concert is part of the group’s world tour, which they announced on Instagram to their 8.1 million followers on Thursday, and will include a show in Israel on May 9.
This is not the first time Maroon 5 have performed in Egypt. They played a concert in Cairo in 2011.
Tickets for the UAE and Egypt concerts will go on sale on Friday.
The band, which formed in 2002, first played in the UAE in 2008 at the Dubai Media City Amphitheater, and again in 2011 at Dubai World Trade Center.
Their most recent concert in the UAE was at City Walk’s Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai in 2019.
