Calvin Harris, Pink to headline Abu Dhabi Grand Prix gigs
:: Internationally renowned DJ Calvin Harris will kick off four days of celebrations on Nov. 23 as he returns to Abu Dhabi for the 2017 Yasalam After-Race Concerts, while P!NK, regarded as one of the best-selling female pop icons is lined up to close off the race weekend on Nov. 26.
Grammy Award-winning record producer, songwriter and DJ Harris stands as the figurehead for modern dance music, having broken world records and dominated global music charts. He became the first British solo artist to reach more than one billion streams on Spotify and currently has over 5 billion streams across all major streaming services and 11 consecutive platinum singles.
Redefining the title “rockstar,” P!NK has remained a household name of floor-bouncing pop and chart-rocking singles, including “Get the Party Started,” “So What” and “Try.” Since her debut in 2000, the 37-year-old singer has set a new standard in the industry with seven smash records and 15 singles in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Especially known for her live theatrics and mesmerizing stage presence, after-race audiences are set for a concert experience unlike any other.
Both events are exclusive to Abu Dhabi Grand Prix ticket holders and F1 tickets can be purchased at www.yasmarinacircuit.com.
Rihanna, The Chemical Brothers and Lionel Richie performed last year at the event.
