A year after showering the Musée du Louvre in lights during his "United at Home" NYE 2020 performance in Paris, David Guetta is set to repeat the magic at the Louvre in Abu Dhabi.
The chart-topping French DJ has actually called the UAE his second home since 2015 after purchasing property on the Dubai Marina. Guetta has become a mainstay of the region since then and says his upcoming NYE performance is about "showing gratitude."
"The Louvre is one of the most iconic venues in the world and I am so excited to be playing at the Abu Dhabi counterpart this New Year's Eve after the success of my Paris livestream last year," Guetta said in a press release. "It’s an honour to be invited to come and perform; we’ve got out of this world production once again this year and it’s going to be an electrifying show and an amazing night. I can’t wait to connect with you all and celebrate the New Year together."

Kid Cudi, Migos, Halsey, 100 gecs and more are also set for performances.
Guetta's upcoming performance will pull out all the stops in terms of special effects. In addition to 20-meter high flames erupting into the sky and a setup of over 500 light fixtures illuminating the stage, special visualizations of the Louvre's artwork itself will also be featured during the performance. If you've never been to the museum, you'll still get to see dazzling projections of some of the world's most celebrated paintings, some of which are hundreds of years old.
"Unifying, universal and uplifting, David Guetta’s music is the perfect auditory analogue for what we are working to achieve at Louvre Abu Dhabi," said Manuel Rabaté, Director of Louvre Abu Dhabi. "As the first universal museum in the Arab World, Louvre Abu Dhabi affords the achievements of all peoples and cultures with equal respect, while celebrating profound moments of exchange and encounter. David’s show at the museum, which combines so many influences, will represent a truly global example of culture and creativity when it is streamed online on New Year’s Eve."
Guetta's performance will stream here on January 1st, 2022 at 12AM, GST (December 31st, 2021 at 9PM CET, 3PM ET, 12PM PT).
