The Chainsmokers to perform in Dubai this November | The SunNovember 2, 2022
The Chainsmokers are set to perform in Dubai this month for the first time since the release of their fourth album.
The EDM-pop duo Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart will deliver a set full of chart-topping hits on November 12th at White Beach.
They'll kick off Sanctuary, the venue's Saturday night club event.
It comes as the American electronic music act recently released their fourth album called So Far So Good, following a three year break from social media.
The duo marked their return to Insatgram with a statement saying they had removed their song Kanye from streaming platforms following Kanye West´s antisemitic comments.
The said: "Eight years ago we made a song saying we want to be like Kanye.
"Back then this guy inspired us in so many ways with his vision and music. Even more recently he sampled our son NYC which was so cool but a lot has changed even since then.
"This is just not the same guy we loved and were inspired by which really saddens us.
