I have no idea yet why this got cancelled on such short notice - I can voice plenty of theories but most of them would probably land me in trouble with the thought police (aka those who sponsored my visa) so I'm just going to leave it at that for now. But the Sasha show this past Thursday was going to be the big one for what will otherwise be a pretty slow two months in this fair city - it's not like back home where all of the good concerts come through in the summer. In Dubai, everyone who can afford to do so gets the hell out of dodge to get away from the stifling heat, consequently nobody bothers to book any big acts between July and September. Why do you think Bon Jovi will be playing here in August? I rest my case.
