Since we like to keep it topical here, here are our Top 5 songs to listen to during those earth tremors that have been shaking the UAE recently.
AC/DC – You Shook me all Night Long
Motorhead – Shake the World:
Def Leppard – Let’s Get Rocked
Cinderella – Shake Me
Megadeth – Symphony of Destruction
While this is a little bit of fun our thoughts do go out to all those who have lost friends, family, homes and businesses in the recent earthquakes in Iran.

After a highly successful, critically acclaimed 11th edition, Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival is already set to return for next year! The same format will be followed, having two weekends of Main Gigs and Jazz Garden in between, but with more new additions that will exceed everyone’s expectations as seen every year.
“More than 55,000 fans from across the region flocked to DubaiFestivalCity for the annual nine-day event. With the new theme of ‘Rocking the City’, the festival has yet again proven itself to be much more than just a Jazz event,” said Anthony Younes, CEO, Chillout Productions.
With an increase of 20% from the 2012 Edition, this year’s event was indeed more than an average music festival. “The challenge of raising the bar for the next edition will always be there. People will constantly expect a bigger and better edition. Every year, we need to come up with fresh and unique ideas to offer our ever-growing crowd. Truth to be told, it’s not a matter of necessity for us, it’s a matter of choice. Just like the festival being a system for bringing Jazz to large audiences that wouldn’t normally hear it. It’s not easy, but we did it. And for 2014, we most definitely will,” commented Younes.

We here at Metality UAE often hear rumours that bands are coming to the UAE, so we thought we would share them with you. We do not know whether these are true, or a hopeful fiction created by someone’s over active imagination, but, we can all hope
Alice Cooper - well, this one was pretty much confirmed, but it seems that Alice has been nabbed by a bigger event company than the original one. So now we don’t know if this has all gone T*&% up…
System of a Down – so the rumour goes that this band will be in the capital in June. We cannot confirm this, but happy happy if true. However it does mean that it is likely at the Flash Forum as an outdoor concert in June would be a KILLER.
Roger Waters – this one we hear is a done deal. Also planned for the capital.
Bon Jovi – who can resist another wrinkly rocker? This one comes with no dirty details!
Europe – These famous rockers were confirmed for another festival that is coming up shortly, but cancelled. Turns out they are still going to be heading to the UAE later this year – or so the rumour goes!
Iron Maiden – this is a persistent rumour and is very possible. Fingers crossed!
Foo Fighters – this rumour has been around since early last year, but keeps on being resurrected – still no details and still no confirmation.
Please feel free to let us know the rumours YOU have heard!
