UAE Locals have been advised to purchase their tickets in hurry as organisers anticipate that many international holidaymakers will book special Abu Dhabi holidays to attend the event and see the Queen of Pop perform live. Despite the fact that temperatures in Abu Dhabi can run as high as 38°C in June, organisers are confident of a strong turn-out for the outdoor concert.
“Audiences of more than 60,000 gather to see an artist like Madonna in rain, hail, snow, humidity and heat…Madonna is a legendary performer and the weather shouldn’t stop anyone seeing her in the UAE…We expect many tickets to sell to international guests who will travel to see their idol” noted a spokesperson from Flash Entertainment, the firm responsible for the Abu Dhabi leg of Madonna’s world tour.
The highly anticipated event is expected to draw crowds of approximately 45 000 people and in order for tourism authorities to cash in on the event and help boost the popularity of Abu Dhabi holidays, tourism officials have noted the importance of high profile events such as this which drammatically increase the number of overnight guests staying at Abu Dhabi hotels.
“Extremely high profile concerts of this nature do much to spread awareness of Abu Dhabi’s tourism offering and the city’s emergence as an international entertainment destination…Headline concerts have proved their worth in delivering an increasing number of guests to Abu Dhabi’s hotels and this show, coming as it does in a traditionally slow month will be welcomed by all in the UAE capital’s hospitality sector” noted Faisal Al Sheikh events manager at Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority.
