Alisha Coelho of United Arab Emirates' The Emirates Evening Post reports:
The Dubai Desert Rock festival ended yesterday with a glittering display of fireworks and performances by bands like INCUBUS, THE BRAVERY, PRIME CIRCLE, JUNKYARD GROOVE and former LED ZEPPELIN frontman ROBERT PLANT & STRANGE SENSATION. The last two acts in particular, had the crowd screaming for more.
The crowd just wild when INCUBUS took the stage. And they went wilder when the band played "Wish You Were Here" and "Nice To Know You".
Andrew Melius, a high school student who studies in Abu Dhabi said that the most electric performance of the night was INCUBUS. "INCUBUS really rocked," said Melius who says he will definitely make the trip back the next year.
As the last act geared up to play, one noticed a much older crowd that began to band together close to the stage. 43-year-old Anand Sharma, a marketing manager who works in Dubai said that his friends and him had been waiting for a long time to watch Plant play.
"When we were younger, we'd listen to the music on the radio or on tapes that friends who'd traveled abroad would bring back to India. We never dreamed that we'd watch him live, because when we were young, foreign live acts weren't plentiful in India," said Sharma who donned a LED ZEPPELIN t-shirt.
