What’s life without a bit of rock n’ roll? What’s music without a bit of madness? And what’s the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix without the after-race concerts?
Just when you think that the after-race concerts cannot top their effort of the previous year, the Yas Marina Circuit and Flash Entertainment spring the most excellent news of the two of international music’s biggest acts coming to town. The Yasalam After-race concerts at 2018 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix are set to feature The Weeknd and Guns n’ Roses!
That’s right – Canadian pop sensation The Weeknd takes to the stage on Friday, November 23 and legendary rock act Guns N’ Roses close out the event on Sunday, November 25. Between these two – and more acts are being confirmed for a final announcement even as you read this – it’s a lot of hit music to choose from!
Start the race weekend with The Weeknd’s extraordinary chart busting hits ranging from ‘I can’t feel my face’ to the recent ‘Call out my name’, swaying to the strains of his hypnotic voice over a mesmerising evening. On Sunday, get to your feet as the legendary trio of Axl, Slash and Duff take to the stage to belt out their past hits like ‘Sweet Child o’ mine’ and ‘Welcome to the jungle’. These musicians have never performed in Abu Dhabi before, and you shouldn’t miss out on the chance to watch them live – who knows when they’ll be back here again?
About these musicians…
The Weeknd shot to fame with his single ‘I can’t feel my face’ about two years ago, and has never looked back since. The platinum record and Grammy Award winning singer has legions of fans from around the world, and not just his native Canada. He has toured the world, but this will be his first outing in Abu Dhabi.
Meanwhile, the Guns n’ Roses need no introduction. One of rock music’s most enduring acts is a huge draw wherever they perform, and the Yasalam after-race concerts at the 2018 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix are surely enriched by their presence.
Two more international acts are being confirmed – watch this space for details!
