In his only Middle Eastern gig this year, Joe Cocker will play the Al Badia Golf Club on May 22, it has been announced.

Legendary British rock and blues singer Joe Cocker is due to perform in the United Arab Emirates this May, in his only Middle Eastern appearance this year.

The show, on May 22 at Al Badia Golf Club, comes on the back of his latest album, Hard Knocks, which was released last year and went straight to number one in the German charts.

Cocker has released more than 20 albums during his 51-year career and he was named by Rolling Stone magazine as among the 100 greatest singers of all time.

His major accolades include an Acadamy Award, a Golden Globe and a Grammy, so he is likely to prove a big draw for visitors on flights to Dubai.

Thomas Ovesen of Done Events, an event management company in Dubai, said: “Joe Cocker is a living legend and everyone here will know some of his songs, whether they grew up with his music or were exposed to it in movies and TV series.”

Tickets for the event are on sale now, ranging from Dh300 to Dh500 (£50 to £84).
