Following last month’s announcement that The Weeknd would headline the second concert for the 2018 Formula One in Abu Dhabi, the second big name act for the Formula One weekend has been announced.
Guns N’ Roses will perform on the first day of the event on November 25. According to Flash Entertainment, the band approached them to be a part of the show. “They actually heard about how great the race was from driver Kimi Raikkonen and wanted to get involved. Front man Axle Rose is a big formula one fan and big gear head,” John Licorice, the head of Flash Entertainment told The National.
It’s not the first time the brand has performed in the region, having most recently performed in March 2017.
There’s still no word as to who will fill the two remaining performance slots on November 22 and 24 so watch this space.
