Abu Dhabi Rolling Stones show and travel info + Rehearsals
Posted by: bv ()
Date: December 8, 2013 12:31

Please use this thread to discuss details about ticket sales, travel and more regarding the ABU DHADI show of the Rolling Stones "14 on Fire" tour 2014:

Fri 21 Feb
du Arena, Yas Island
Abu Dhabi
United Arab Emirates

Rehearsals report Wed. Feb 19 Abu Dhabi here: [www.iorr.org]

RECOMMENDED MEETING POINT IN ABU DHABI BEFORE THE SHOW:

Most people come in on show day or the day before, so I will suggest a meeting point on Yas Island at one of the hotels there. They are all in the same area, 20 minutes i.e. 1 1/2 km (one mile) from the du Arena, nice little walk to the arena if you get the taxi to drop you off.

I checked the three closest hotels and I would recommend this one for a meeting point:

CROWNE PLAZA YAS ISLAND - SUNDOWNER poolside bar

It is outside the hotel, facing the sea. Enter the main entrance, make it to the right of the lobby, down the stairs, out through the doors, and they have a great area for food and drinks. Heineken draft and of course Budweiser NA (Non Alcoholic) which taste better than I was expecting. Also regular bud.

Show day recommended meeting time: Friday 4pm

What sort of presales there will be? Linked to a special credit card?

As I understand you get a code via e-mail or sms as a "du mobile" customer, however I think there is a possibility of becoming a "du Friend!" and getting access codes at this link


full details that they used for example for a Rihanna concert: here

I will be in touch later today with a friend living in Abu Dhabi and will try to get more details

Seems odd, "but I like it"...
We'll see how that works out - I'll be interested to see how many "early entry" tickets will be sold...
This is the one of the few Stones concerts where I got my ticket without any hassle/website problems/"out of time"/availability issues... [would also be interesting how this concerts sells out].

Cheers
Michael

Never been there. So I wonder will there be many locals? Can't really imagine that.
Or is it just for all those foreigners working there?

Paul McCartney played a show for F-1 attendees a couple of years ago. I wonder how that went over.

Not sure where to stay... the island or dowtown, which is cheaper, but pretty far


Yas Island is prone to be a pleasure dome (all kind of, I expect). Would you expect the Stones reahearsals there?
