Chart-topper David Guetta will perform an online show from the helipad of Dubai's Burj Al Arab hotel.

Streaming on his social media channels, including Facebook and YouTube, from 6pm on February 6, the rooftop destination will provide a stunning panoramic backdrop of Dubai as the French EDM DJ spins hits such as I Gotta Feeling, Titanium and Memories.

The concert also aims to raise funds for Unicef and Dubai Cares’ campaign Education Uninterrupted, which supports education and distance learning for children, students and teachers affected by the pandemic.

Guetta's Dubai stop forms part of his United At Home concert series, as part of which he teams up with humanitarian organisations to perform streamed sets from various picturesque locations.

The campaign kicked off in April 2020, when he delivered a poolside show overlooking Downtown Miami and the waters of Biscayne Bay. The event was well-received with 25 million and 17 million views on YouTube and Facebook respectively.

Guetta followed it a month later with another show at New York City's Top of the Rock Observation Deck at Rockefeller Centre. With 24 million streams, the show aimed to raise funds for Covid-19 relief efforts.

Perhaps, the most stunning of all was Guetta's freezing New Year's Eve gig at the Louvre in Paris, during which he gave a euphoric set on the empty concourse of the beautifully lit museum.

With Guetta presently the reigning number one spinner on the prestigious DJ Mag Top 100 list, the man is on top of his game. His show on top of one of Dubai's most recognisable landmarks serves to underscore his status.
