It was 1st December 2008, a night before 37th UAE National Day. Zayed Sports City, Abu Dhabi was set for the long awaited performance of Alicia Keys and George Michael. Concert was attended by thousands of George Michael fans, who included Europeans, Asians and Arab nationals working and living in UAE. I also travelled from Sharjah to attend the concert.
Alicia Keys started the concert at 8:40 pm and she got great appreciation by the audience. Especially the way she played live grand piano was just awesome. Her hit song ‘Super Woman’ got maximum response. After her performance there was a break of about 1 hour during which the stage was totally changed and his musicians placed their instruments. Stage design was also changed and it gave a beautiful look. George Michael gave an amazing live performance. He sang his superhit songs including ‘Careless whisper’, ‘Faith’, ‘Jesus to a child’, ‘Father figure’, ‘Freedom’ and ‘Dont let the sun go down on me’. I enjoyed the concert very much as I was dancing very close to him with UK citizens who enjoyed the concert in a great way. Discipline was just appreciable and all the audience paid great attention to keep the environment peaceful.
