The 24-year-old singer entertained her fans, nicknamed Selenators, with hits from her latest release such as Good For You, Hands To Myself and Same Old Love, as well as old favourites, Who Says and Love You Like A Love Song.

Last week, PAS Youth dakwah committee chairman Hafez Sabri called for the concert to be cancelled, saying that Gomez’s sexy appearance would tarnish the sanctity of the month of Syawal.

A strong police presence was seen stationed in and around the venue.
