On February 27 2012, the tickets for Madonna’s MDNA Tour stop in Abu Dhabi (June 3) went on sale and all 22,000 tickets for her first-ever United Arab Emirates show were sold-out immediately.

“The moment you’ve all been waiting for, here’s your chance to witness the concert of the decade as Madonna, the world’s top-selling female recording artist, makes her appearance on our shores,” announced the Flash Entertainment website, before replacing the picture on their site with a sold-out banner.

Mira Sadek from Flash entertainment said: “We are proud and delighted that the UAE will host Madonna’s first concert in the Gulf region. We were surprised with the speed at which the tickets were sold out, although we were expecting such a huge fan base.”

A second show at Yas Arena was added for June 4 and also sold-out immediately (tickets for the second show went on sale March 5).
