Susan Boyle is set to perform her first full concert abroad after accepting an invitation to perform in oil-rich Abu Dhabi.

She has been booked to headline a gig in front of 11,00 fans at Zayed Cricket stadium in the United Arab Emirate capital on December 13.

The 75-minute long concert is expected to mirror the show she put on during her recent Scottish tour.

Cultural chiefs in the area are delighted to have lured her. A tourism official said the singing sensation’s concert “promises to be an unforgettable evening of world-class entertainment”.

Ms Boyle has performed at ceremonies all over the world, but has never done a full concert abroad.
