Jlo in Dubai: The Experience

It’s been 3 days since the event and I’m still on a high! I know I wrote about Jlo coming to Dubai but I wasn’t sure if I could go. A few days before the concert, I received complimentary tickets! Regular Standing but I’m not complaining. YAY!! 
I didn’t have time to do a “dress rehearsal”, you know…that moment that you take out all your clothes and try them on to see which will look good. (Cm’on don’t tell me, I’m the only one doing that?) So I just wore jeans and my 5 year old, asymmetric black top (coz black is your best friend..it makes you look skinny. haha!)
And the best part, I was able to cross one more thing off my  list! I wore false lashes. HAH! I couldn’t have done it without any help. I just can’t put it on by myself. (Loser much?)
We arrived at the venue around 7 pm. Parked the car and walked towards the gates. There was a veeerryy long line. Everyone was so excited. Or maybe it was just me. HAHA!
Once inside, we picked a spot and waited. 

Still waiting…

We got bored waiting so we roamed around for a bit. Then went back to our spot (this time its a bit packed) and waited some more. The show started at exactly 920pm. 
Here’s the setlist (copied from wikipedia)


  1. “Never Gonna Give Up” (Video Introduction)
  2. Get Right
  3. Love Don’t Cost a Thing
  4. I’m Into You
  5. Waiting for Tonight
  6. Louboutins” (Space Cowboy Remix)(Video Interlude)
  7. Goin’ In
  8. I’m Real (Murder Remix)
  9. All I Have
  10. Feelin’ So Good
  11. Ain’t It Funny (Murder Remix)
  12. Jenny from the Block
  13. “Brave” / “I’m Glad” / “Secretly” (Video Interlude)
  14. If You Had My Love” (Acoustic)
  15. Qué Hiciste
  16. Until It Beats No More
  17. Baby I Love U!” (Video Interlude)
  18. Do It Well
  19. “Whatever You Wanna Do”
  20. Hold It Don’t Drop It
  21. “Untitled” (Video Interlude)
  22. Let’s Get Loud
  23. Papi
  24. On the Floor
  1. Dance Again
By the end of the show, I was jumpin’ and dancin’!! I love love love the experience. JLo really worked up the crowd (although, most of the peeps around us are just standing there…What are you doing in a concert if you’re just gonna stand there and judge people having a good time?)
I got home all blistered and tired but its all worth it! I must say, this experience is much better than MDNA. But that’s just me.

    Did JLo come from Dubai before coming here to Manila? We also enjoyed her show last night! I hope you enjoy reading my own concert recap too.
