P!nk and Calvin Harris to perform at Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2017
Yas Marina Circuit and FLASH Entertainment today jointly revealed two of the four international headline artists for this year’s Yasalam After-Race Concerts, which will take place at du Arena, Yas Island, at the 2017 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Kicking off four days of celebrations, on Thursday 23 November the internationally-renowned DJ Calvin Harris will return to the capital and ignite the 2017 Yasalam After-Race Concert series of high energy and world class musical talent.
Grammy Award-winning record producer, songwriter and DJ Calvin 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. His music videos have amassed more than 7.2 billion combined views online, with his singles “This is What You Came For”, “How Deep is Your Love”, and “Summer” all having surpassed the 1 billion mark individually.
Topping off the party on Sunday 26 November, P!NK, regarded as one of the best-selling female pop icons is lined up to close off the race weekend.
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.
The exciting announcement was made today at a special media event at Virgin Megastore, Yas Mall with Arabian Radio Network’s Virgin Radio broadcasting live on air across the UAE from the flagship store.
