Kylie Minogue is to be paid £1 million for a private performance in Dubai.
The '2 Hearts' singer has been asked to sing during a lavish four-day launch party to celebrate the opening of the Atlantis, The Palm resort, which includes a 400ft-high hotel complete with 17 restaurants and a water park.
A source said: "This will be Kylie's first show in the Middle East and it should be really special. There will be no expense spared. She knows that in the UAE she has thousands of fans and as it will be her debut in the country, she has a lot to live up to"
Around 2,000 VIP guests, including politicians, actors, musicians and members of the Dubai royal family, are expected to watch the 40-year-old singer perform.
Another source said: "She is already planning the shows, the costumes and the songs but there is no doubt that it will be the climax to the end of her year of touring expected of a star of her stature.
"Kylie will be sure to give the shows a little local flavour. She is just the person to bring maximum publicity to such a prestigious, high profile development."
