Videos of Beyoncé’s private concert at a luxury resort in Dubai leaked on social media Saturday despite a reported ban on phones and recording devices.
The performance — the artist’s first since releasing her latest album “Renaissance” in July 2022 — took place at Atlantis The Royal in the United Arab Emirates city, according to an invitation Pitchfork received from Beyoncé’s team. The resort is described on its website as “the most ultra-luxury experiential resort in the world.”
The outlet reported Friday that the invite was for “an all-expenses-paid luxury weekend” that served as the unofficial opening of the venue, complete with a “once in a lifetime performance.”
One fan shared a video on Twitter Saturday of pouches that were given to audience members to put their phones in during the performance. The bags were branded with the resort’s name and date.

The show could also be seen from outside of the resort, where some fans recorded the singer’s vocals and fireworks that went off during the event.
The “Break My Soul” vocalist appeared to end the dramatic performance in a pool surrounded by more pyrotechnic effects.
