Yas Marina Circuit and FLASH Entertainment have announced the next global music superstars to perform at this year’s Yasalam After-Race Concert as part of the FORMULA 1 ETIHAD AIRWAYS ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX 2019.
American rockers The Killers will bring their world beating catalogue of massive hits including “Mr Brightside”, “Somebody Told Me”, “When You Were Young”, “Human”, “Runaways”, “The Man” and more to the du Arena, Yas Island, on Sunday 1st December.
The addition of The Killers to the international line-up perfectly builds on the huge excitement and momentum sparked earlier this year by the announcement that American hip hop sensation Travis Scott will perform as the Friday Yasalam After-Race Concert.
Taking to the stage in Abu Dhabi for only the second time in their incredible career, The Killers are set to close this year’s F1® music celebrations with an epic performance of their biggest hits.
Formed in 2003, global success came quickly to the Las Vegas born band, with their debut album, 2004’s ‘Hot Fuss’, catapulting them from newbies to international superstars.
What followed was two years of constant touring, with The Killers perfecting their stunning live show over the course of an incredible 400 gigs at some of the world’s most-famous music venues, stadiums, and festivals while selling millions of albums and winning over countless devoted fans in the process. Their subsequent studio albums have seen them top charts around the world (the most recent, 2017’s “Wonderful Wonderful”, giving them a record breaking fifth consecutive UK #1 as well as reaching the summit in the U.S).
The Killers have already this year headlined some of the world’s biggest festivals, including Glastonbury in the UK. Famous for their great live sets, the band will be at the very peak of their live performance powers when they take to the stage at the du Arena, Yas Island on Sunday 1st December.
With music lovers of all ages counting themselves as fans of both Travis Scott and The Killers, the Friday and Sunday night Yasalam After-Race Concerts are sure to prove a huge hit with racegoers from more than 170 countries who will travel to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
