Didn’t manage to get tickets for the concert? You can still see the show across the UAE…
Fans of Mariah Carey (almost) broke the internet last week when tickets to her free Dubai concert sold out within seconds. The concert, taking place on Sunday October 20 at Burj Park, is in celebration of the 1 Year To Go Expo 2020 campaign and will see Mariah take to the stage at 8.20pm.
Once the clock strikes 8.20pm, there will be a fireworks display in Burj Park, as well as an LED light show from Burj Khalifa. Alongside Mariah Carey on the evening, there will be live performances by Hussain Al Jassmi, DJ Bliss, Abri & The Funk Radius, and Khalifa Nasser.
If you’re not one of the 7,500 people who nabbed a ticket to the show, you can still catch all the action across the emirates. In Abu Dhabi, you’ll be able to see Mariah and all of countdown commotion live at Louvre Abu Dhabi between 5pm and 10pm on Sunday October 20. Not only that but Louvre will have its own live performances from Layla Kardan, Sandra Sahi and Stephon LaMar.
In Sharjah you can get involved at Al Majaz Waterfront, where there will be additional performances from Clarita de Quiroz, ROOH and Benna Duo. Check out the show at Ajman Museum and see Hydyy Brown, Arqam “Chakram” Al Abri and Igor “Bu Oleg” Ivanovic all perform.
There will also be a live stream at Fujairah Fort, alongside music by Bafoory, Ghaliaa and Aman Sheriff. In Umm Al Quwain there’s a show happening at the Corniche which includes performances by As Per Casper and Mohamed Hosny. Finally if you’re in Ras Al Khaimah, head down to Al Qawasim Corniche to find a live broadcast of the Dubai show plus performances by Nutella Riot and Souldier The Artist.
All events are free to attend and only the Dubai show is ticketed, so head down early if you’re checking out the additional events. Each festival will have a live stream of Dubai’s event plus food and beverage stands available as well as music and entertainment, promising to provide fun for the whole family.
Let the countdown begin…
