Get ready to rock it with the big daddy of rappers! It's confirmed now that Jay Z will play at Abu Dhabi's du Arena on 1 November for this year's Yasalam After-Race concert. Beyonce's hubby joins Arab musical stars Amr Diab, Elissa and Hussain Al Jassimi (who take to the stage for opening night on 31 October), Brit rockers Muse (set to perform on Saturday 2 November) and Depeche Mode (who play on Sunday 3 November) on the ace lineup.
Jay Z’s name was announced today (19 August) at Virgin Megastore, Mall of the Emirates with a massive crowd in attendance. The first 200 lucky fans received invitations to Jay Z's concert while the first 40 got a three-day pass to the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and accompanying concerts.
We're super excited about Jay Z's visit and even more exciting is the possibility that the superstar's megastar wife Beyonce will join him in the UAE. Perhaps even their little girl Blue Ivy! Think a whole lot of celeb spotting!
