Stormy weather ended fans’ hopes of seeing pop star Dua Lipa help celebrate Louvre Abu Dhabi’s first birthday last night.
The singer’s gig had to be cancelled for safety reasons as strong winds and rain battered the Saadiyat Island venue.
She expressed her sadness on Twitter, writing: “I am so sad to announce that due to bad weather conditions, tonight’s show at the Louvre in Abu Dhabi has been cancelled.
“I really wanted to sing and dance for you. Hopefully I will be back very soon.”
Organisers FLASH Entertainment released a statement saying “keeping fans safe remains our primary concern”.
It also added they hoped the gig would take place at a later date.
Ticket holders for the cancelled gig are urged to email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a refund.
The superstar concert, due to be held in a special festival arena outside the Louvre, was intended to round off a mega weekend of birthday celebrations for the arts hub.
