Day 8 at Yas Island: The Big Day

13 NOVEMBER 2011

Today was the biggest day of the year for Yas Island. The finals race of the 3rd Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix was held today, and a major concert was held at the Yas Arena.

By lunch time, we were informed that there were like 40,000 people inside Yas Marina Circuit. We were made to be on stand by. The number of spectators were expected to rise as the races haven’t officially started yet that time.

The final race started at 5pm and ended around 7pm. We were made to be on red alert. Some patients came in, but thanks God that nothing major happened – before, during and after the race. The spectators peacefully moved to the next venue, which was the Yas Arena for Paul McCartney’s concert.

Luckily, my shift had ended by 7:30pm so after my work, my friends and I ate dinner  at the hotel quickly, changed our scrubs and ran to the concert venue.



When we arrived at the venue, I couldn’t help but compare this concert to the first two concerts I watched the previous nights. This one was really jam-packed! Last night’s concert by The Cult and Incubus didn’t even fill half of the venue. Britney’s concert was full of people, but there were still some spaces at the back. Double that amount of people for Paul McCartney’s concert.

Paul sang most of the Beatles’ hits such as Hey Jude and Let it Be. The concert venue became a huge videoke arena as people sang along to most of the familiar songs. They also danced the night away with the more danceable 70-80s hits. People kept asking for more until the end.

The highlight was a spectacular fireworks display during one danceable number. The stage had huge flames and the sky was filled with exploding colors. The sky was lit with beautiful fireworks, like it was New Year’s Eve in the Philippines.

I had a really nice time! What a way to cap the week! Paul McCartney still rocks!
