She’s back! Beyonce has first concert in FOUR YEARS in Dubai at Atlantis The Royal opening… as fans manage to capture the show despite phone ban
- Beyoncé required guests to lock up their phones, but some skirted the rules
- The singer, 41, was reported to be doing an hour-long show back in December
- She is coming off her massively successful album Renaissance, released in July
The 41-year-old musical icon was taking to the stage to celebrate the opening of new luxury hotel Atlantis The Royal, which managed to draw out a bevy of international stars.
Despite the high profile of the event, the hitmaker tried to tamp down on the publicity by banning recording and forcing attendees to lock up their phones ahead of the show.
Still, a few intrepid attendees managed to keep their cameras free and shared videos of Beyoncé belting out her hits, including Halo.
