The former member of the British boy band One Direction disappointed fans in Dubai, and the world over, when he suddenly left the group just weeks before the band was slated to perform its first-ever Middle Eastern concert in the emirate. Although the show went one, Malik's absence was hard for many fans to accept.
Now, Malik is about to make it all up by performing his first official concert as a solo artist at Dubai's Autism Rocks Arena on October 7!
And even if you aren't in Dubai and can't make it to the show, there's going to be a tour following the concert. Keep your eyes open for more details!
Last year, Malik took "time off" from the band after a photo of him and a girl, who wasn't his girlfriend, surfaced from Thailand.
Shortly later, the singer announced that he would be parting way with his bandmates. However, with the release of his solo album "Mind of Mine," Malik quickly shot to No. 1, captivating old and new fans with hit singles including "Pillowtalk" and "Like I Would."
