Poor Elissa has not had a good time in the Gulf recently . The sexy Lebanese star hit a bum note with Bahrainis when she visited for the Arab Jewellry Exhibition in October.
The singer caused outrage by turning up late and seemingly snubbing their prime minister. So her next trip to the Gulf has been planned to perfection to avoid any further blunders.
Elissa will be performing  alongside Iraqi megastar, Majed al Muhandis, at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Dubai for New Year's Eve. The pair are hoping to see off a tumultuous year with a concert almost guaranteed to succeed.
