November 23, 2018

Friday 23rd November

It’s confirmed! Grammy Award-winning singer Sam Smith will be performing live on Saturday night at the FORMULA 1 2018 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX.

Yas Marina Circuits official Twitter feed has been teasing us with clues to the identity of the third Yasalam artist, but following the announcement this morning in Abu Dhabi, we can confirm now that it will be the British singer-songwriter that takes his place alongside The Weeknd (performing Friday 23rd November), and Guns N’ Roses (performing Sunday 25th November).

Following the launch of his debut album ‘In the Lonely Hour’ back in 2014, Sam Smith has gone on to win over 27 awards, including a Grammy, Billboard Award and Brit Award for ‘Best New Artist’. 2016 saw Sam’s career to hit new heights with the release of the James Bond hit ‘Writing’s On the Wall’, which landed the singer a UK Number 1 hit, and an Academy Award and Golden Globe to add to his collection.

Sam Smith will end his world tour in Perth, Australia on the 20th November, and will perform at the Yasalam After-Race Concerts on Saturday night. We can’t wait to welcome him to Abu Dhabi.

Access to the Yasalam After-Race Concerts is with a FORMULA 1 2018 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX weekend ticket. Golden Circle upgrades available for ticket holders. (Additional Costs Apply)
