American rock legend Guns N’ Roses will headline the Yasalam After-Race Concert on November 25 as part of the Formula 1 2018 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The crowds of race-goers from 170 countries will get a chance to greet the rock band’s original members Axl, Slash, and Duff, while they perform their hits like “Welcome to the Jungle”, “Sweet Child o’ Mine” and “Paradise City”.

Guns N’ Roses, who have sold more than 100 million records worldwide, have been performing to sold out stadiums around the globe in recent years, which means fans who travel to the race can expect to see an amazing performance by the legendary rock act.

“Guns N’ Roses are one of the biggest groups in music and reinforces our four-day proposition of on-track, off-track and after-race entertainment. We are thrilled to announce that the original line-up of the band will be headlining the Sunday night show at this year’s Yasalam After-Race Concerts as part of the 2018 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix race weekend,” said Al Tareq Al Ameri, chief executive officer of the Yas Marina Circuit.

“With two great acts already revealed, we are looking forward to announcing the next big artist who will take to the stage as part of an incredible weekend of racing and live music and entertainment for ticket holders.”

Those planning to attend the grand prix will get a special 30-per-cent discount on the Early Bird tickets until the end of this month.
