Mariah Carey in concert

In celebration of it being 1 Year To Go (until the) Expo 2020 Mariah Carey is performing a free concert at the Burj Park tonight. Tickets were gone in a matter of seconds, however the concert is going to be streamed in Sharjah at Al Majaz Warerfront and the Louvre Abu Dhabi from 5pm. Along with the concert kicking off at 8.20pm there will be a fireworks display and an LED light show from Burj Khalifa, so even if you’re missing the concert action, there’s going to be a buzz around the Burj tonight. We say, book a fountain side table for dinner tonight and soak up the exciting atmosphere ahead of next year’s EXPO. 5pm – 10pm, +971 4 555 2020
