Multiple Grammy Award winner Janet Jackson will perform at the Dubai World Cup on Saturday March 26 as a part of her 'Unbreakable' world tour.

The performance will be held on the Apron Views concert stage at 10pm (approx) following the $10m Dubai World Cup final race.

Access to the concert is exclusive to Dubai World Cup day ticket holders.

The music icon said: "I am excited to perform for the global audience at this year's Dubai World Cup. The entire 'Unbreakable' company is looking forward to traveling with me to Dubai and being part of one of the world's most prestigious events."

Following the performance at the Dubai World Cup, Ms. Jackson is scheduled to kick off the highly anticipated European leg of her 'Unbreakable' world tour on March 30 in the UK.

The 'Unbreakable' world tour, which commenced in North America on August 31, 2015 to rave reviews and accolades, sees the return of one of the world's most influential entertainers on the live stage, in support of her album, Unbreakable, from Rhythm Nation/BMG.

Unbreakable, which recently became the singer's 7th #1 album, made music history by making Janet Jackson one of only three artists to achieve a #1 album in each of the past four decades.

The album's initial offering, 'No Sleeep,' became 2015's longest reigning #1 single on the Adult R & B Chart (Mediabase), spending 12 weeks at the top spot.

Dubai World Cup ticket prices start at Dh450 for Apron Views while numerous hospitality ticket packages are also available.

The biggest social and sporting event on the UAE calendar, ticket holders will gain access to the nine races that make up Dubai World Cup day, the spectacular Dubai World Cup show and fireworks display as well as the Janet Jackson concert.

Hospitality gates open at 2pm and the first race starts at 3.45pm.
