Colin Randall Back to the West: what have I missed? (5) RE: Back to the West: what have I missed? 18 Mar 09

I'm in Abu Dhabi, where there has been the odd world music event (I've seen some decent Turkish and Lebanese musicians) and an Irish band that plays the odd gig. Dubai is livelier , with the Irish Village and a lot more venues, but Abu Dhabi also has Womad coming next April

On a broader musical note, there are big rock/pop concerts in both cities. Elton John/Shakira/George Michael/Aguilera/Santana have been here while we've lived in the UAE. Lots of classical concerts, too, if that appeals.

My wife is upset that Coldplay are on in Abu Dhabi just after we leave (end of March). I'm less bothered but would have gone; we decided early on we'd try to get to as many live events as possible
