Spotted: Here are all the celebrities that were in the UAE this weekend
And there certainly were a lot of them…
Dubai is fast becoming the mini-break and stopover favourite for the world’s rich and famous.
With so many A-listers (and B, C and D-listers) visiting the glittering emirate every day, it can be hard to keep track of who was spotted where.
And no weekend brings them out more than the annual Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Add to that an epic Ed Sheeran gig, and you’ve got yourself a star-studded weekend that every celeb clearly wanted to be a part of.
So, we’ve rounded up our favourite celeb spots from this weekend, featuring singers, actors, sports stars and a race car driver or two as well…
The British singer songwriter finished up his 2017 world tour in Dubai at the Autism Rocks arena. The sellout gig saw Ed perform a two-hour set including his number one singles Castle on the Hill, A Team and Shape of You to 25,000 fans.
Martin Garrix and Max Verstappen
Dutch DJ Martin Garrix and racing driver Max Verstappen were spotted catching up over the weekend in Abu Dhabi. The duo were both in the emirate for business, with Garrix performing on Friday night at du Forum, and Verstappen here to race. He starts the final race of the season in 6th position.
