Op-Ed: Dubai concert promoters not happy about concert costs

By Nate Barlow     Jun 3, 2008 in Entertainment
Dubai - The Hollywood Reporter ran an article last Friday describing the rapidly growing and thriving entertainment scene in Dubai.
The closing paragraph of the Reporter article delivered what has to be the quote of the year so far from Abdullatif al-Sayegh, CEO of Arab Media Group:
"[it's] good that Dubai is on the radar screen of the world's major reporters... [it's] not so good that we are paying twice or three times as much for concerts as do promoters in the U.S. and Europe."
Hmmm, kind of what everyone in the U.S. feels about the price of gas? Sorry, al-Sayegh, no sympathy here.
