Flash Entertainment today announced that tickets for international superstar Rihanna’s Middle Eastern debut are selling fast ahead of her New Year’s Eve concert on the lawns of Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi.
The Abu Dhabi-based live events consultancy, who have brought some of the world’s top stars to the capital, are encouraging fans to purchase now to be a part of the region’s biggest New Year’s Eve celebration.
Not only will Rihanna be performing, but ticket holders will also be able to enjoy La Rumba, a fantastic line-up of regional and international DJs headlined by hip-hop supreme DJ Green Lantern who will take party-goers into the early hours of the morning.
John Lickrish, Managing Director of Flash Entertainment, said:
“The response from the public has been fantastic since we announced Rihanna would be performing in Abu Dhabi and there is no doubt it’s going to be an unforgettable way to see in 2010 and the beginning of a new decade.”
“There are still tickets available but they are selling fast and we are expecting even greater demand this week heading into the event. Tickets are well priced for one of the biggest stars in the world right now so we encourage fans to buy now to avoid any last minute disappointment.”
Buying tickets has been made even easier for everyone, with outlets now available at Marina Mall, Emirates Palace Abu Dhabi and Virgin Megastores outlets across the region.
