Justin Timberlake 20/20 Experience in Abu Dhabi

1 comment:
Couple of days before I won the best mood board of a concert outfit, my husband and I were talking about missing our road trips and long drives to other Emirates of the UAE. Then suddenly I got lucky :D, the people of SIVVI sent us two tickets to the Justin Timberlake concert in Abu Dhabi Du Arena

International DJ Freestyle pump up the music an hour to the concert. The crowd was shouting Justin's name by nine pm. He came down from the stairs with spotlights on him accompanied by the shrieks of the crowd. The concert venue was full and the approximate number of people was at 20, 000



Justin's performance was electrifying and engaging, all through out the concert, he was asking the crowd to sing parts of the song with him. His music and songs are all familiar since we've been listening to it over and over again on the radio almost every morning on the way to work. I love the songs Cry Me A River, What Goes Around Comes Around, Summer Love from his 2002 album Justified and from his 20/20. Experience album - Mirrors, Not A Bad Thing, TKO, Pusher Love Girl, and Suite and Tie. He also sang Love Never Felt So Good as a result of his collaboration with the late King of Pop - Michael Jackson as a tribute as well as an Elvis Presley song.

He even reminisced the last time he was in the UAE in 2007 concert at the Emirates Palace.

All the grooving and the singing continued but he couldn't stop mentioning how hot it is in Abu Dhabi, he was literally using a big towel to mop his forehead but he was still looking so crisp and clean with his lightning printed black polo shirt.



He was on guitar and on piano, so versatile.



The Tennessee Kids was Justin fun loving band whose with him all through out the 20/20 Experience World Tour.


Being in a Justin Timberlake concert was HOT in every sense.

I was thankful I did go for this (summer) concert outfit because it was really hot, so hot that I have to remove my blue top because it was wet with sweat and I have to put my hair up in a bun.


Hubby wore this white cotton polo shirt and green shorts, very light and comfortable.


It was a sweet sweet experience.

There are just a few things to remember when going to a summer concert especially in UAE

First: Come early if you wanted to get your most coveted spot 

Second: Stay hydrated. Bring bottles of cold water with you and drink plenty of it.

Third: Wear comfortable and light fitting clothes

Fourth: Never drink and drive 

Fifth: Use a good phone camera if you have since professional cameras are not allowed.

Mica's colorful and vibrant costumes at schools annual concerts

No comments:
Every year, my daughter school hold its annual concert where the students showcase their talents in dancing, singing, and acting. It is a much awaited event of the year and we are always excited to see our daughter perform on stage wearing colorful costumes and/or pretty dresses. The students are from many nationalities living in Dubai and so it is a melting pot of cultures, what I like the most is the school puts a lot of effort to incorporate the things students learned in the school to their performances

Year after year the concert has different themes and Mica has always been actively participating in the annual concert event of her school

This is Mica with teacher Shekina-KG 1 Daisies



KG 1 Daisies dancing in the tune of Chocolate


Mica and her classmates inside the classroom as they wait for their turn to perform, Elisha was attentively listening to what Mica was saying, God knows what they are talking about, they all look so cute in their shiny colorful Indian style costumes. - KG 2 Daisies



This time around, they are dancing in the tune of Moja He Moja Jab We Met




This act was about the story of the mouse and the lion, something that has a moral lesson thought to children - Grade 1 - G





My daughter with her classmates after their opening song WELCOME, yeah this time they sing - Grade 2 E



Mica likes to sing more than to dance but she can follow the steps, I'd really hope that my daughter grow up to be a good singer not like her mom who always out of tune :( :p


From the baby that she was to a little girl now
