Justin Timberlake ‘takes back the night’ in Abu Dhabi show
Timberlake entertained the crowds in the Emirati capital as part of his 20/20 Experience World Tour
Wowing more than 20,000 fans, Justin Timberlake played a spectacular show in Abu Dhabi on Friday night.
Timberlake entertained the crowds in the Emirati capital as part of his 20/20 Experience World Tour.
The American star kicked off the show by descending a staircase to the sound of screaming fans and sang his opener, Pusher Love Girl.
Timberlake then returned to his acclaimed 2002 debut solo album, Justified, and its hit single, Rock Your Body.
“Joined by six dancers, he twirled and sashayed across the stage, recalling his glory days as a member of the boyband ‘N Sync,” the UAE-based The National reported.
Timberlake had previously performed in the capital in 2007. Abu Dhabi has previously hosted the world’s biggest rock band, The Rolling Stones, in February.
And among the global pop stars to play in the UAE, Lady Gaga has recently announced that she’s coming to Dubai in September, in what will be the controversial pop star’s first concert in the Arab world.
While excitement reigns for fans in the region, the announcement was stained with fears over the 28-year-old risqué singer’s upcoming performance. It was recently announced that her Dubai show would be censored.
