Abu Dhabi, you are in for a musical treat. R&B superstar Usher has been announced for the F1 Yasalam After Race Concerts. Usher is performing on 17 November, and will be bringing his signature soul songs and moves to the UAE capital.

The concerts culminate with rock legends Def Leppard on 20 November.

We will be offering our race-goers from around the world another unreal experience with a range of different genres to make their weekend unreal. With race weekend almost here, all that remains is for me to wish a warm welcome to the thousands of global F1 fans who will soon be making their way to Yas Island – the Meeting Place of Champions.”
