Imagine Dragons lead singer Dan Reynolds expressed his gratitude to the passionate Saudi Arabian audience:
"Do you know how it feels to come so far from home and feel at home? To be here in Saudi Arabia and to feel your love, to feel at home, is incredible. Thank you so much."
The band captivated their adoring fans with hit tunes like ‘Believer,’ ‘Thunder,’ ‘Demons,’ ‘Bad Liar,’ and ‘Radioactive.’
Speaking about their unexpected journey to Saudi Arabia, Dan Reynolds shared:
"I grew up wanting to travel and experience different cultures but I never, ever thought I’d make it to Saudi Arabia. I just want you to know that we don’t take this lightly, we don’t take this for granted. Saudi Arabia, we love you, and we’re going to be coming here as many times as you’ll have us. It feels good to be alive!"
Adding to the vibrant atmosphere, Gamers8 featured the Official Music Anthem 'GG Geena,' a collaboration between Saudi Arabian artist and gaming enthusiast Mishaal Tamer and Palestinian Jordanian national Llunr. The anthem resonated with the crowd, and Mishaal expressed his excitement, stating:
"It’s very surreal to hear our anthem at Gamers8 walking round Boulevard. It’s a dream, and I feel like I’m ready to wake up at any second! This is the biggest gaming and esports festival in the world, and this is the anthem – wow! It’s amazing."
'GG Geena' captivated the audience with its blend of epic drums and claps influenced by traditional 'shailat,' incorporating Arabic musical elements such as the oud and percussion. The anthem's anthemic intro, featuring the familiar gaming phrase "GG," further amplified the crowd's enthusiasm.
The night continued with DJ Loush taking the stage and setting the energy levels soaring. With special renditions of David Guetta’s ‘Titanium’ and ‘Play Hard,’ Rihanna’s ‘Where Have You Been,’ and Calvin Harris’ ‘How Deep Is Your Love’ and ‘One Kiss,’ DJ Loush had the crowd dancing and singing along. As a Saudi-born DJ, he added a personal touch by playing Guetta’s 'I’m Good,' creating an unforgettable experience for everyone present.
