5 things to do between now and the next Ahlan!
Have a Laugh with Kevin Hart 
The Hollywood stand-up, known for his roles in big-budget comedies such as Ride Along and Get Hard, is bringing his tour to Abu Dhabi. The show’s garnered five-star ratings on Trip Advisor after going all around the world with stops in Australia, South Africa and the UK. Having partied with Hart at the F1 back in November, we can guarantee this is your ticket to high energy humour and a laugh a minute. INFO: Tickets cost from Dhs395 and are available at ticketmaster.ae and Virgin Megastores, Du Arena, Yas Island, 
Abu Dhabi
See Avicii in Dubai 
Famous for tracks including Hey Brother, Wake Me Up and Levels, 26-year-old Tim Bergling from Sweden – better known as Avicii – will take on the 10,000-capacity Zabeel concert hall at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Two years after his last planned gig in the UAE, which was cancelled for health reasons, we’re hoping this April Fools’ Day show goes off without a hitch!

There’s also a carving station where you can try the traditional Emirati lamb ouzi with rigag bread, and the Seven Sands date pudding in toffee sauce is a firm Ahlan! favourite.
