It’s been four years since Queen B aka Beyonce headlined a show and performed in front of a live audience. The singer deserved a befitting return and Dubai gave her just that. This Saturday, she performed at a star-studded show, which began as a theater performance. Violinists in metallic gold headpieces and voluminous red skirts were the first to take command of the stage. Beyonce’s dancers and several other musicians then arrived on stage in matching outfits and posed in front of the Egyptian themed backdrop.
The performance was part of Atlantis Resort’s ‘Grand Reveal’ weekend celebrations of the new Atlantis The Royal in Dubai, due to open next month.
Fans and guests then got to see Beyonce, who ascended a stage wearing a yellow corseted dress, feathered skirt and feathered back piece, at the one-hour, invitation-only performance.
Fireworks exploded above the venue as the iconic singer opened the show with Etta James’ song ‘At Last’. Then, she said on the microphone that her mom Tina Knowles, her dad Mathew Knowles, her “beautiful husband” Jay-Z and her children, Blue Ivy, Rumi, and Sir Carter were present at the venue to support her.
While Jay-Z enjoyed Beyonce’s performance from his seat, Blue Ivy took the stage to perform ‘Crazy in Love’. The 11-year-old proved she was a star in the making as she stepped out in a red sequined jumpsuit with a billowy skirt, and flipped her braids as she walked alongside her mum.
Videos of the performance have gone viral on social media. Look!
As Beyonce performed ‘Brown Skin Girl’, Blue Ivy stood beside her, dancing, and nailing the choreography that the dancers next to her were doing. When the song ended, she hugged her mom, walked up the steps, and hit a post before leaving the stage.
Beyonce had three different wardrobe changes during the performance. In one of the changes, she wore a red dress with a corset and skirt. She was also seen wearing a crystal-embellished mini dress during the show’s finale.
Chloe and Halle Bailey, Nia Long, Kendall Jenner, and Rebel Wilson were among the stars who attended the show. Everyone in attendance had to adhere to a strict no-phone policy. They were not allowed to take photos or videos of the concert. However, they could bring their phones to the former party, where the Swedish House Mafia operated.
