Buzzingtales has some very exciting news to share for all young and old Disney fans. Mickey Mouse and his band of friends, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy will be performing in a music mash–up of mega proportions when Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival come to Dubai for the first time with one of the most spectacular and interactive family shows to hit the UAE’s live entertainment scene. Concert goers will hear greatest hits from Disney blockbuster movies, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story remixed to rock, pop, reggae, hip-hop, jazz and country, among other jams.
We got a preview a sneak peek of the absolutely stupendous Mickey’s Music Festival and got to interact with Mickey Mouse and his effervescent girl friend Minnie Mouse.
“One song can touch millions of people around the world and Disney has been at the beat of this concept for years by making music a main ingredient of storytelling,” said Producer and CEO of Feld Entertainment Kenneth Feld. “In Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival we are celebrating with the Disney characters to a soundtrack of the latest sounds and chart-topping hits. We want our guests to walk away with lasting memories and singing these unforgettable melodies long after they leave the show.”
Didier Vanneste, Senior Vice President & Country Manager at The Walt Disney Company Middle East, added, “We are thrilled about Dubai hosting our show. We cannot wait to see the delight on the faces of Disney fans of all ages.”
Disney Live! Mickey’s Music Festival, featuring an all star line-up of more than 25 Disney characters, begins with audiences watching a state-of-the-art video projection of the frenzy backstage which spills onto the stage as Mickey welcomes guests to his concert tour. Soon thereafter, they will be transported to a new world of hip hop beats, dizzying acrobatics, flying carpets and magical transformations with Aladdin, Jasmine and Genie. Underwater is where the crowd will meet up with Ariel, Sebastian and their nautical pals to groove to the reggae rhythm. And, family and friends will stomp to the beat as Woody, Buzz and Jessie teach them how to boogie rodeo-style.
“We’ve created an environment where audience members will be able to connect with the Disney stars,” said Alana Feld, Producer and Executive Vice President of Feld Entertainment. “Within each concert moment are elements of personal interaction and the audience will be harmonizing, dancing, laughing and having an outrageously good time with the characters.”
