The Killers to Join Travis Scott at Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
After news broke out that American hip hop star Travis Scott will be headlining the show at the Yasalam After-Race Concert at the du Arena, Yas Island this November 29, American synth-rockers The Killers has been announced as the closing act for the highly-anticipated event.
The news was confirmed by Yas Marina Circuit in a press statement that was released recently. It was noted that The Killers who are hitmakers of songs like ‘Mr Brightside’ and ‘Somebody Told Me’ will close the concert on Sunday, Dec 1.
No strangers to the UAE, The Killers have actually performed in Abu Dhabi previously in December 2009 as well as at the Sandance festival in Dubai back in October 2013.
While Travis Scott and The Killers have been announced to perform on Friday November 29, and The Killers on Sunday Dec 1, no artistes have been announced for concerts on Thursday and Saturday. The grand prix runs through the course of four days from November 28 to December 2.
Al Tareq Al Ameri, CEO of Yas Marina Circuit, said: “We are delighted to announce The Killers will play the headline show on Sunday night at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix After-Race Concerts.
“With their huge collection of global anthems, massive fan appeal, and incredible live performances, The Killers are the perfect band to play at the du Arena at the end of the fourth day of great F1 action.”
“This year’s Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will be a celebration of the best in motorsport and live music with five full days of on and off-track entertainment lined-up as we mark our second decade of success at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit.”
