Beyoncé's very first full-length concert in five years marked the opening of Dubai's grand new Atlantis The Royal. She was reportedly paid $24 million for the performance, reported celebrity website TMZ on Monday.

The one-hour performance was said to be the launching pad for Beyoncé's upcoming Renaissance tour. It had a strict VIP guest-list, bringing together 1,000 audience members including UAE royalty, regional influencers and celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Ellen Pompeo, Rebel Wlson, Ronan Keating, Amir Khan among others, according to different reports.

She performed a mix of hits from her extensive back catalogue, as well as a surprise guest performance by her eldest daughter, Blue Ivy, 11. The pair sung a duet called 'Brown Skin Girl', reported WWD, a fashion daily publication.

The rest of the set included hits like, 'At Last,' 'XO,' 'Flaws and All,' 'Ave Maria,' 'Halo,' 'Beautiful Liar,' 'Crazy in Love,' 'Drunk in Love' and more. No songs from 'Renaissance' were performed.

Her performance was followed by a spectacular fireworks display and a DJ set from Swedish House Mafia, reported The National.
