October 19, 2013 More than 25,000 pop music lovers gathered at the Du Arena on Yas Island-Abu Dhabi for Rihanna’s concert, presenting her hit song and latest album.
The international super star’s show wasn’t as entertaining as expected -with no outfit changes and no dancing- but the crowd shined bright alongside Rihanna to her most famous songs: Rock Star, We Found Love, Only Girl, Don’t Stop the Music, Man Down and Where Have You Been.
For the first time in the region, white wrist bands were distributed to everyone and blue lights automatically came on at certain moments during the show, spreading a feeling of united joy among the presence. It was a stunning view, which made the arena shine “like diamonds in the sky”. Shortly after an hour of singing, Rihanna responded to her fans’ pleas for an “encore” by announcing: “We’re not ready to go back home,” and sang Diamonds In The Sky as the finale.
