'Deported World Tour' will be the first ever show to be staged at the new state-of-the-art venue in City Walk

Great news for stand comedy fans in the UAE.

The eagerly awaited Dubai Arena is set to launch with a performance by stand-up comedy superstar Russell Peters.

Dubai Arena at City Walk is a new, state-of-the-art multi-purpose arena spanning an area of half-a-million square feet with a capacity of almost 17,000.

And now Peters is bringing his Deported World Tour, produced by Live Nation Middle East and Flash Entertainment in association with Dubai Calendar, to Dubai on June 6.

Peters’ previous appearances in Dubai rank among the fastest selling shows in the UAE, and the multi-award winning comedian’s show will be the first ever event staged at the new Dubai Arena.

Featuring material not previously seen in the region and Peters’ signature audience interactions, the highly anticipated show will see the hit comic showcase his unique brand of humour and at a live entertainment venue expected to be among the most spectacular in the UAE and the Middle East.

Named alongside such comedy legends as Richard Pryor, George Carlin and Eddie Murphy in Rolling Stone’s recently released list of the ‘50 Best Comics of All Time’, Russell Peters success began on Youtube.

After gaining critical and global recognition for his CTV ‘Comedy Now!’ special in 2004, Peters has since gone on to establish himself as a worldwide comedy phenomenon, becoming the first comedian to sell out Toronto’s Air Canada Centre. He has performed sell-out shows across the world, including Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, the Sydney Opera House and the Hammersmith Apollo, and the specials from his tours have been broadcast on Showtime and Comedy Central.

The Deported World Tour kicked off in Australia and New Zealand in February 2018. It has already travelled to over 29 cities in 20 countries and been seen by over 100,000 fans worldwide. The tour will continue well into 2019 and Peters will then take an extended break from live touring to focus on other ventures and spend more time at home with his daughter.
