Done Events has announced that top international artists Amy Winehouse and Pharrell Williams...[will be] at the 2011 Gulf Bike Week, from February 10-12. Thomas Ovesen, Chief Operating Officer, Done Events, said: “Having Pharrell Williams with his band N*E*R*D, Mike Posner and the amazing Amy Winehouse
performing over the same weekend is a real scoop and will not only ensure a full house during the Gulf Bike Week event but will also kick off an amazing season of great entertainment in Dubai.”
On that event:-
The Gulf Bike Week 2011 is the Middle East’s only dedicated urban bike festival in the region. In 2010, the Gulf Bike Week attracted over 30,000 enthusiasts as well as over 14,000 concertgoers.
In 2011, more than 150 exhibitors and lifestyle brands including Harley Davidson, Suzuki, Honda, KTM, Ducati, BMW, Kawasaki, Victory, Yamaha, Polaris, Pirelli, Ed Hardy, Bauhaus, and Oakley will be participating at the Gulf Bike Week.
Her participation was problematic as one Gulf paper headlined:-
Winehouse cleared to perform in Dubai
On her Brazil tour in January, she
will be accompanied by former SAS officers and Brazilian police will be on high security alert to ensure her safety.
But, given her Star of David pendant prominently displayed the way she does,
she'll need a bigger guard detail in Dubai or she'll be hiding her religion.
Or arrested as a Mossad agent?
