The last two artists for the Yasalam F1 After Race parties have finally been revealed. This week, the organizers have announced the last two headliners to appear on the lineup for the this year’s concert series at Etihad Park during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. They are UK rapper Dave and rock’n’roll legends Def Leppard. 

Dave will take to the stage on Nov. 17, while the British rockers will close out the event with a live performance on Nov. 20. The artists will join a stellar lineup of confirmed artists that include EDM group Swedish House Mafia, who are headlining on Nov. 18 and Grammy-winning rapper Kendrick Lamar, who is set to perform on Nov. 19. 

The rock group, who released their debut studio album On Through the Night in 1980, join other established bands who have performed in the concert series over the years, including Aerosmith in 2009, The Who in 2014, and Guns N’ Roses, who performed in 2018. 

They are known for their remarkable category of hits, such as Love Bites and Photograph

Meanwhile, Dave, born David Omoregie, gained prominence in the UK grime scene for his 2019 debut album Psychodrama, which explored themes of mental health and social issues. The critically-lauded musical project went on to win the Album of the Year at the 2020 Brit Awards.

The concerts are exclusively for the Formula One Abu Dhabi Grand Prix ticket holders, which can be purchased from the Yas Marina Circuit website.
