TICKETS have gone on sale for the upcoming performance of singer Rita Ora.
On her first visit to the kingdom, the British star will perform on March 8 at Bahrain Bay, in a show organised by the Economic Development Board (EDB).
Born in Kosovo, the blonde beauty moved to the UK in 1991 when she was a year old and rose to fame in 2012 when she featured on DJ Fresh’s single Hot Right Now and subsequently released her debut album, Ora, in August 2012, both of which reached number one in the UK.
In the same year, she also became the artist with the most number one singles on the UK singles chart.
Some of her most popular singles include Your Song, How We Do, I Will Never Let You Down and For You, which recently featured on the Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack.
Last week, Ms Ora equalled a record jointly held by British female artists Shirley Bassey and Petula Clark for the last 30 years.
Her collaboration with Liam Payne, For You, became her 12th Top 10 single on the Official Singles Chart last week, climbing to number eight on the latest Top 40.
This means that Ms Ora has equalled the record for the most Top 10 singles by a British female artist.
Tickets are priced between BD20 and BD50.
The 13th edition of Spring of Culture began on Sunday and continues until April 30.
The festival is organised by the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities, the EDB as well as the Shaikh Ebrahim bin Mohammed Al Khalifa Centre for Culture and Research.
