After four years, Beyoncé returned to the stage for a private, invite-only concert in Dubai.
A grand hotel opening that doesn't just get the country talking but the world as well, are far and few in between.
Kickstarting its first day of business with a huge bang, making waves in both local and international news, the luxurious Atlantis The Royal in Dubai broke into the scene with a Beyoncé performance, which also makes this the Crazy In Love singer's first long-form act since Coachella 2018.
The private headline show lasted for a little over an hour, and was attended by celebrities, influencers, affluent figures, and other exclusively invited guests.
Where was the concert held?
The show was held by Atlantis The Royal to mark the luxurious hotel opening its doors for the first time. Attendance to the concert was invite-only.
Hotel bookings will open from February 2023, and the cheapest stay is nearly USD 1,000 per night with fancier suites priced at a whopping USD 285,000 a night.
Guests at Atlantis The Royal can enjoy (and even take home) complimentary gold-plated toiletries including combs, toothbrushes, and razors with the Midas touch, personal butlers, a menu dedicated just for pillows, and dine at any of the hotel's 17 restaurants and bars run by celebrity chefs.
There is a store that sells Picasso art, and guests can even have the chance to meditate with dolphins.

What songs did Beyoncé perform in Dubai?
Although the private show had a strict no-phones and no-recording policy, it didn't stop attendees of the 1,500-seat gig to share and upload photos and videos.
Reportedly, her headline performance also included classic hits such as 'Halo', "Crazy in Love', and 'Freedom', and her songs from Disney live action The Lion King movie.
Beyoncé's first daughter, Blue Ivy, joined the stage as they performed a beautiful mother-daughter duet of 'Brown Skin Girl'.
