British singer Seal will perform at the Dubai World Cup concert on March 30, after American pop star Anastacia was forced to pull out of all her forthcoming gigs due to a recurrence of breast cancer.
“We are delighted to celebrate this as one of the most memorable events in the sporting and social calendar, and to welcome such an internationally acclaimed artist like Seal to perform live in concert,” The National newspaper quoted Frank Gabriel, chief executive of the Dubai Racing Club, as saying.
The Dubai World Cup is a thoroughbred horse race held annually since 1996.
The Grammy-award-winning musician has enjoyed success internationally, with a career spanning more than two decades.
Seal has released several albums since his debut single “Crazy” was released in 1990. He is due to appear as a coach on the Australian version of the talent show “The Voice.”
