Celebrities including Kendall Jenner, Liam Payne, Ronan Keating, Rochelle, and Marvin Humes, as well as British Vogue editor Edward Enninful, reportedly paid the US superstar $24 million (£19.4 million) for the special event.

At a private hotel launch event in Dubai, Beyonce performed for the first time since 2018. Her daughter Blue Ivy joined her for a duet at one point.

For the event at the opening of Atlantis The Royal, dubbed as the world’s most ultra-luxurious resort, the 41-year-old US artist performed a 90-minute set.

Beyonce made her entrance in front of a 1,500-person crowd wearing a yellow sequined gown and sculptural feathery cloak. She started the performance with her rendition of At Last by Etta James.

She also sang some of her most well-known songs, such as Crazy in Love, Naughty Girl, Halo, and XO. Her performance culminated with a performance of Drink in Love as fireworks lit up the night sky.

A duet with Brown Skin Girl from the 2019 album The Lion King: The Gift featuring her famous mother and 11-year-old Blue Ivy surprised the crowd.

People in the throng were instructed to put their phones in pouches, and security allegedly warned them if they were caught snapping pictures.

The singer decided not to unveil any songs from her most recent album Renaissance, which is up for two Grammys, and instead focused on songs that were rarely or never played live.

Beyonce addressed the ecstatic crowd and said, “We are very honored to be here to share this night with you. There is a Utopia of people from all over the world on this stage.

“To celebrate, my mum and father are also present tonight. My lovely spouse and I are performing in front of my lovely children.”

The Destiny’s Child actress then donned a red corseted minidress with matching stockings and gloves before changing into a red and gold bejeweled bodysuit with a billowing train.

Several famous people, including Kendall Jenner, Liam Payne, Ronan Keating, Rochelle, and Marvin Humes, and British Vogue editor Edward Enninful, reportedly paid her $24 million (£19.4 million) for the exclusive concert.

She now has full creative power. We want her to convey her creativity in her own unique way since this is her work, managing director Tim Kelly said.

“I can’t tell you how professional and disciplined the rehearsals were enough.

“She began preparing and performing on stage as soon as she came last week, and she is currently creating and curating a show.

“Because she doesn’t have a show in the box, she isn’t pulling one out. You can expect Beyonce at full throttle.”

Although it “came together quite fast,” Mr. Kelly acknowledged that it “takes a long time” to acquire the international music singer for the launch.

He stated: “She gets to decide what she wants to do in this situation. We feel honored and proud of her, and it’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance for her to perform in Dubai on this particular night.

”We have always said that this is an iconic building, so having the most famous artist alive today, who hasn’t appeared in public for more than four years, the play makes it feel like a night of icons”.

Beyonce last performed as the headlining act at a live event in December 2018 at the Global Citizen Festival in Johannesburg, South Africa.
