Where have you been, Rihanna? Seems the Barbadian pop queen is coming to Dubai in September.
According to the Fenty Stats Twitter account, which tweets out news about RiRi’s smash make-up brand, the singing sensation is to give an exclusive beauty talk at Sephora on her best-selling range. Along with two of her global make-up artists, on 29th September, Robyn Rihanna Fenty will share her tips and tricks from the much-hyped drop that she blessed the world with in 2017.
The event will benefit local good cause Dubai Cares, which works with UN Aid Agencies and international NGOs to fund programs in developing countries. Dubai Cares has retweeted the announcement too, so seems it’s all checks out.
Tickets, which are bound to sell out, being offered through Ticketmaster from AED 5,500 to AED 7,500. That’s an awful lot of Fenty Match Stix. Also, a location for the over-18s talk yet to be confirmed – FWIW, Sephora has branches in most of Dubai’s malls, including The Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates.
Rihanna, 30, last performed in the UAE at the Yasalam After Race Concert in Abu Dhabi in November 2016. This time she’s not officially here to treat us to any of her nine Grammy Award-winning hits, but of course we’re all hoping she’s ‘pon the replay.
