Jay-Z Set to Perform at Abu Dhabi Grand Prix


Jay-Z


The rapper joins Arab stars Amr Diab, Elissa and Hussain Al Jassmi, British rock band Muse and English electronic music group Depeche Mode to perform at the Yasalam After-Race Concert.

It has just been announced that Jay-Z will headline the Yasalam After-Race Concert at the du Arena on Yas Island on Friday, November 1. The performance will be a part of the final evening of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend in the United Arab Emirates.

"Jay-Z is the biggest rap mogul and music icon on this planet," Flash Entertainment Vice President Mike Fairburn said of Jay-Z's upcoming appearance. "He was an obvious choice. Booking artists of high calibre is important since Abu Dhabi is one of the top circuits in the world."

This will mark Jay-Z's first appearance in the Middle East, according to Gulf News. He will be following in the footsteps of his wife Beyonce Knowles, who performed a memorable set at the 2009 Grand Prix.

The site reported that Arab stars Amr Diab, Elissa and Hussain Al Jassmi, British rock band Muse and English electronic music group Depeche Mode were also scheduled to perform at the concert.

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix has a reputation for delivering the biggest names in music for their Yasalam After-Race concert. Last year's lineup included big names like Nickelback, Kylie Minogue and Eminem.
