Thousands of musicians and singers from around the world are set to perform online for a show that will be streamed on Global Village’s Main Stage and across social platforms on October 30.
Hundreds of artists from over 70 different countries worldwide have already signed-up for the opening concert of Season 25.
Rockin’ 1000, the biggest rock band on earth, has also announced the first four songs to be played in the concert – Ramone’s version of What a Wonderful World, Status Quo’s Rockin’ All Over the World, You Get What You Give originally from the New Radicals and finally We Will Rock You by Queen. These timeless classics were chosen for their worldwide appeal and the lyrics which are particularly relevant for this momentous occasion.
The concert, in partnership with Arabian Radio Network, will also be shown on Emirates’ award winning, in-flight entertainment system ICE.
Rockin’1000 was created by Fabio Zaffagnini and his team five years ago when he brought together 1000 musicians to play in his home city of Cesena to convince his favourite band, the Foo Fighters, to add Cesena to their tour plan. Little did he imagine that what started as a stunt would become a worldwide phenomenon and that Rockin’ 1000 would soon play some of the biggest stadiums in the world. The band has gone from strength to strength ever since its debut performance and they are now recruiting hundreds of new members from the region to play in the upcoming concert, which will be broadcast on Arabian Radio Network.
Rockin’ 1000 is inviting musical talents from all corners of the world to perform in this epic event. Musicians and singers from across the UAE and around the world still have time to register for a chance to perform in the Season 25 opening concert as part of Rockin’1000 and win a trip to Dubai courtesy of Emirates.
Jaki Ellenby, Executive Director of Marketing and Events, Global Village, said: “Here at Global Village, we celebrate diversity and are inspired every season by the seemingly limitless creativity of the people we welcome from cultures around the globe. That’s why we want to ensure that we celebrate our 25th season opening with a concert that people can enjoy no matter where in the world they are. By bringing together hundreds of artists of different ages, abilities and nationalities, we are promoting a spirit of togetherness, which transcends borders, generations and race. We are calling on talented musicians and singers to join us for this epic event as part of the renowned Rockin’ 1000 band.”
