Kylie Minogue is to play her first live show in the Middle East later this week.

The singer will perform at the world's most expensive hotel in Dubai on November 20, followed by a gig at Dubai's Festival City the next day.

Minogue will be the headlining act at Atlantis, The Palm, where she is expected to be joined on stage by Nawai Al Zoghbi, the biggest-selling Arab artist in history. DJ Sam Ronson will play at the aftershow party.

The popstar will take home £2 million for the appearance, according to reports.

The event has attracted high-profile guests including Oprah Winfrey, Robert DeNiro, Janet Jackson, Boris Becker and the Duchess of York.

The following day, Minogue will play to 20,000 fans on the Middle Eastern leg of her 'X2008 Tour'.

“I can’t wait to see you all at my first ever show in the Middle East," she said on her website.

Concert promoter AEG added: “For years we have been waiting for Kylie to perform here in the Middle East.

“It is going to be a great night and Dubai Festival City will definitely be the place to be on November 21."
