Rihanna thrills Abu Dhabi at Flash Entertainment’s spectacular New Year’s Eve concert
Global superstar Rihanna brought in the new decade in front of over 10,000 fans with a stunning two hour long performance on the lawns of Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Palace followed by a spectacular firework display.
With an incredible stage show with fantastic dance choreography and stunning costumes for the songstress, Rihanna’s Middle Eastern debut provided an unforgettable way to bring in 2010.
Arriving in Abu Dhabi two days prior to the concert to rehearse for her spectacular show, fans were certainly not disappointed as she flawlessly performed some of her most celebrated hits including ‘Disturbia’, her new single ‘Hard’ and an encore of her smash hit ‘Umbrella’.
Energized by Rihanna’s action-packed show, party-goers then danced their way into the small hours of the morning at the La Rumba after party. Fans enjoyed R&B and eclectic house beats at the La Rumba after party which was headlined by hip-hop supremo DJ Green Lantern and continued with a fantastic line-up of regional and international DJs.
Flash Entertainment, the Abu Dhabi-based events consultancy that brought Rihanna to the capital, said the night was a “triumph”. John Lickrish, Managing Director, Flash commented:
‘‘Tonight was a huge success and a truly memorable way to end a great year for Flash and Abu Dhabi. Rihanna’s performance left us all breathless and set a very high benchmark for next year. With such outstanding artist performances in the past year, 2010 can only get bigger and better – Abu Dhabi has once more proved that it is the party capital of the region; we look forward to another incredible year ahead.’’
