Kylie Minogue to headline F1 concerts

4th Sep 2012

Kylie Minogue has been confirmed as a headliner at the post-race concerts at the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix in November.

The Grammy-winning Australian pop star will perform on the first night of the Yasalam After-Race Concerts on November 2.

Canadian rockers Nickelback take the headline spot for the following day, with Sunday's top artist yet to be confirmed.

John Lickrish, chief executive officer at Flash Entertainment which organises Yasalam, expressed delight at securing Kylie and Nickelback for this year's event.

"They are both huge acts, and continue to build on the festival's commitment to providing world-class live events in and around the race weekend for residents and visitors to enjoy. We are also excited about Sunday of course, and promise fans it will finish off the weekend in style," he added.

In previous years the finale concert on the Sunday has seen the likes of Paul McCartney, Aerosmith and Prince take to the stage, while the identity of this year's star name will be unveiled via a 'Guess Who's Coming' tickets competition at Yasalam's official website

F1 ticket holders are given exclusive access to the Yasalam After-Race concerts, which are now into their fourth year and take place at Abu Dhabi's du Arena at Yas Island.
