Crowds rejoice as David Guetta set to return to Abu Dhabi for 700th time
ABU DHABI: There were scenes of unbridled joy across the Middle East yesterday after it was announced that David Guetta would soon be returning to Abu Dhabi.
“I’m just so excited,” screamed 22-year-old Ghada Barnacles, who last saw the French DJ and producer when he played in Abu Dhabi on Thursday. “I can’t wait for him to play all those great tracks he played last week.”
For 21-year-old Henrietta Equestrian-Sports, who considers herself a Guetta novice having only seen him DJ 39 times in Abu Dhabi before, the announcement was a dream come true. “It’s a dream come true,” she continued.
According to Guetta’s official website, the DJ is “ecstatic” to be returning to the UAE for the 700th time this year, adding that with the airmiles he had so far earned flying to the country “he probably had enough to get to the moon or something”.
Organisers of the gig are hoping that Guetta’s upcoming performance will make up for May 17 of this year, otherwise known as ‘Black Thursday’, when the DJ was booked to play elsewhere and therefore couldn’t come to Abu Dhabi.
