Robbie Williams does Du Arena, Abu Dhabi

Thanks to dubizzle, we managed to snap up last minute “not-so-expensive” Inner Pit tickets to Robbie Williams’ gig last night ๐Ÿ™‚ Left the marina around 7pm, stuck to 140 km/h and got tailgated probably 4 to 5 times on our way to Abu Dhabi ๐Ÿ™ I will do a proper post about this next time. Today, we’re talking about Robbie ๐Ÿ˜€

So we got there just before 8pm. Joined the crowds shortly after, getting entertained watching endless selfies of fans tweeting and instagramming onto the dulive big screen. I’ve always wondered if there is actually someone who filters these things ay. That you don’t suddenly see something extremely inappropriate pop up for 5 seconds, hee hee. Wouldn’t that be funny. I.e the snippets Tyler Durden sneaked into cinema reels ๐Ÿ˜‰

Waiting, anxiously

Few minutes before 9pm, as everyone was refreshing twitter, we got this :


Is that cool, or what? 

And for the next 2 hours or so, Robbie Williams gave probably one of the better shows we have been to, since we’ve been in the UAE in the last three years. 

He was funny, he was engaging with the audience, he did all his hits, and okay sure, the wardrobe was not the most appealing (i.e black skirt, shiny silvery jacket?), we both had a really good night out ๐Ÿ™‚

As for that filipino girl who got picked to go on stage, ha ha – dream come true ay?


The other thing that I liked was the fact that Robbie was – on time. 9pm. Not late by 2-hours, i.e most of the or should I say nearly all the other concerts in this region. Cheers for that ay ๐Ÿ™‚

Great set-up, salute to Think Flash. Fact that they even bothered to replied my tweet as well when we were asking what time the man was coming out. I’m sure they were getting bombarded with lots throughout the night.

PS – mental note to self – Next time we head over to Du Arena for a concert, we’ll bring our bicycles as well. Its a looong walk from carpark to entrance!

For reviews from the media, and ‘better photos’ ๐Ÿ˜€ –

Dubai resident. Stays most of the time in the marina as she can't be bothered going anywhere else after work and in the weekends. Originally from the land of the orang utans, spent the latter half of her life in the land down under. Always on the look out for deals, loves organising get-togethers, and occasionally steals some time for a sip of wine or four at ladies nights.

  1. GREAT photos – lucky you to be in the Inner Pit!
    I’ll be doing my post in the next day or 2 ๐Ÿ™‚
    (PS, very jealous of that girl that he called on stage!!!!!!)

    1. Haha, we discussed for awhile if we should splurge a little bit more for the Inner Pit, we did get it for a pretty good price in the end off someone who was trying to get rid of it!

      Yeah, jeolous of that girl ay, she looked SO happy being “in bed” with Robbie, LOL
