The Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2021 is causing ripples everyday with more and more chartbuster artists confirming their performances at the concert after. The most recent artists to announce their concert is the legendary rock band, the Foo Fighters. What’s even more is that they are not just performing, but will be closing the show with their epic rock notes. The Foo Fighters are headlining the race day concert at Etihad Park on December 12.

Other Artists

  • The latest additions to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will play the fourth and final Yasalam After Race Concert, completing an impressive line-up.
  • US pop star Khalid begins the proceedings on December 9, and British rapper Stormzy performs the following night on December 10.
  • On Saturday, December 11, Scot Lewis Capaldi, winner of two Brit Awards, brings his soulful sound to Etihad Park before Foo Fighters close the race weekend with a roaring set packed with 25 years’ worth of hits, including EverlongLearn to Fly and Monkey Wrench.

John Lickrish, chief executive of promoters Flash Entertainment, says the line-up continues Abu Dhabi F1’s mission to appeal to all music fans. “This is something that we have been developing since the first race in 2009, when we had artists like Beyonce playing as part of her first world tour,” he tells The National. On Thursday, we try to do something for a younger audience. On Friday they plan to ramp up the energy even further, and on Saturday, they will try to add something more mellow and soulful.  On Sunday, it is all about that big emotional release and it’s an artist with huge catalogue of anthems that really gets the crowd involved.

On that score, Foo Fighters are a bullseye.

Post COVID-19 Debut

The Abu Dhabi F1 concert marks their debut concert in the Mena region and caps a run of sold-out arena dates this year, including being the first band to perform at New York’s Madison Square Garden in June, after Covid-19 closed the gates for 15 months. Fans can expect over 20 songs across all their albums including anthems My Hero and Best of You.

Lead singer and irrepressible frontman Dave Grohl has been showing off his fine falsetto and high notes courtesy of the band covering The Bee Gees’ You Should Be Dancing and Queen’s Somebody to Love on the tour.
