The American hip hop star will perform at the Yasalam After-Race Concert
Rapper Travis Scott has been announced as the first headline act who will perform at the Yasalam After-Race Concert during this year’s F1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Scott is set to perform on November 29 at the du Arena, Yas Island. The Platinum-selling artist has been steadily winning over underground music fans in the know since 2014. Last year’s release of his album ‘Astroworld’ saw the 28-year-old American rapper reach global success.
Scott is no stranger to Abu Dhabi, having performed at the Yasalam Beats on the Beach concert in 2016. This time around, fans can expect Scott’s live show in the UAE capital to include hits such as ‘Sicko Mode’, ‘Antidote’ and ‘Yosemite’.
The artist is also partner to the youngest Forbes billionaire, Kylie Jenner. The duo also share a daughter, Stormi Webster.
Tickets to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix are currently on sale. Stub holders can purchase ‘Golden Circle’ upgrades for the Yasalam After-Race Concerts with prices starting from Dh195. There’s also up to a 30 per cent early bird discount for those who purchase tickets before May 31.
The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix runs from November 28 to December 2. Other headline acts for the event have yet to be announced.
