British rockers Mumford & Sons confirmed to play Saturday night Yasalam After-Race Concert
Mumford & Sons will join Calvin Harris and P!NK for the The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Yasalam After-Race Concerts during the four day festivities this November. Mumford & Sons will perform on Saturday, November 25th at the du Arena, Yas Island.
Having mastered the art of entertaining large crowds while headlining at Glastonbury Festival and playing to 65,000 people at Hyde Park, the group will get the crowd going with favorites such as “Believe,” “The Wolf,” “The Cave,” “I Will Wait” and “Little Lion Man.”
Their three previous studio albums took the UK and US charts by storm, and Mumford & Sons have garnered a raft of major music awards throughout their career, including Best British Band at the Brit Awards, and a coveted Grammy Award for Album of the Year.
“Today’s announcement starts the run-in to this year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and we can feel the excitement starting to build already,” states Al Tareq Al Ameri, CEO of Yas Marina Circuit.
“With the latest artist announced, we have lined up four days of outstanding entertainment for the thousands of people attending from more than 170 countries,” he continues. “This year, we have also introduced new initiatives to raise the experience level to new heights, with the addition of Kids Go Free, F1 Experiences and the Golden Circle upgrades as well as previous favourites such as the GP Parks.”
Internationally-renowned DJ Calvin Harris returns to Abu Dhabi on Thursday, November 23rd with P!NK closing the festivities on Sunday, November 26th. Tickets are available online and through the Yas Marina Circuit Call Centre by calling (800 927) or +971(0)2-659-9800.
