Expect a Heatwave in Abu Dhabi as UK chart-topping rap star Wiley will be making his Abu Dhabi debut when he joins Macklemore & Ryan Lewis as a special guest on 25 April 2014 at the du Arena, Yas Island. There's more! A second special guest is set to perform at the Yas Island show - more deets on that in the weeks ahead.
But on to Wiley again! A top name on the Brit grime scene, Wiley’s the man behind global hits including Wearing My Rolex, Never Be Your Woman and, of course, the UK number-one Heatwave.
Most recently named Best Male at the MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Awards, Wiley's super-excited about his UAE gig. "April 25th at the du Arena, Abu Dhabi; it’s going to be massive. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have come on the scene and they’re making a big impact. We share the same ideas about creating different sounds but remaining true to our underground roots so I expect it’s going to be a special show. The UAE crowds know their music and especially their rap so I’m looking forward to giving them what they want.”
See you there!
