LATEST UPDATE 8/6 – Charice has confirmed that she is not scheduled at this event. In response to a Twitter fan inquiry, Charice tweeted back: “No.. But I would love to come back!”
8/2 update – Charice is NOT confirmed to appear in concert at the Dubai Filipino Festival. Her business manager replied simply by e-mail, “it’s not true,” in response to an inquiry from Charicemania to confirm the solo concert. We do not have details if the festival itself is moving forward as planned from 2pm to 2am, but it appears that Charice as of this writing will not be a part of the evening entertainment plans for a solo concert as first reported by gulfnews.com
Another article just published today reported that Zoha Beig, CEO of Dubai-based 321 Events, “is working to set up the concert.” We’ll keep you updated if further news is at hand!
Buy tickets at your own risk. However, it seems too good to be true, especially since Charice will be very busy with preparing and rehearsing with David Foster & Friends for his concert series which kicks off in Vegas on October 1st, before flying to Asia for several concert dates there (beginning October 19) in Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Jakarta, Bangkok and Singapore.
In addition to the DFF events, Charice will also be busy performing solo gigs later this month in Vegas at the 98.5 KLUC End of Summer Block Party on 8/23/2011 and in Singapore next month on Sept 23-24, for the huge racing event there, the 2011 Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Charice will be back again in Dubai after last year’s successful concert at the Dubai Tennis Stadium Aviation Club. The 2010 concert was titled “Rhythm N Voices” and was held on April 30. Charice was paired up last year with Billy Crawford (who is also an international hip hop artist from the Philippines), but this year’s event will be a solo Charice concert.
October is going to be a really busy month for Charice. She has seven appearances for the David Foster and Friends Concert Series – one in the USA (Oct. 1) and six in Asia (Oct. 19 – Nov. 3). Charice has two weeks in between the Las Vegas and Tokyo concerts, so she fitted in a stop at Dubai for all her fans there.
On September 9, Oprah referred to her as ” The Most Talented Girl in the World.” She Sang Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” with David Foster on the piano, after which Oprah surprised here with an appearance by Celine Dion via satellite, who invited her to sing a special duet at New york City’s Madison Square Garden. At a very young age she has made her way to sing with Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli and many great singers.
The starlet released her first English album in May 2010 with the backing of legendary Canadian music producer David Foster. On its first week, the album reached no. 8 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart, making her the first Asian to enter the Top 10.
She made a cameo appearance in her first feature film, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakel, released in North America on December 23, 2010.
On first glance, Charice looks like any other teenager, pretty, petite, filled with energy and a wide and engaging smile. But when the sweet-faced 19-year old starts to sing, with a profound, rich voice, the audience quite literally gasps. And as 13 million hits on You Tube tell us, that audience is growing at a staggering pace. The young Filipina singer, is an internet sensation, and a global star in making.
Charice in now a multi-awarded INTERNATIONAL SUPERSTAR:
Female Concert Performer of the Year -42nd Box-Office Entertainment Awards, 2011
J-Wave Tokio Hot 100 Award: Best New Artist – J-Wave Radio, 2011

Charice’s solo concert in Dubai will be held at the Dubai Festival City on October 7, 2011. There will be guest performers, including the newly crowned Dubai Singing Sensation, Oriel Padura. His co-finalists will also be performing, as reported in The National, a Dubai English newspaper. Tickets are now on sale at platinumlist.ae. Regular tickets are priced at 75 AED while VIP tickets are at 125 AED.
Charice’s concert is the highlight of the Filipino festival which will start at 2:00 p.m. There will be food stalls, adult and kiddie competitions, spa treatments, shopping opportunities, and play areas at the grounds of the Dubai Festival City. This event is a great way to meet fellow Chasters and wait out the time before the start of Charice’s concert in the evening.
