Can we hear a ‘Yeah’ for this awesome announcement…

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is famed just as much for the action off the track as the race itself, and the huge music line-up just got even bigger, with the announcement that American R&B superstars, Usher and Ne-Yo, are both flying in to perform.

But if you’re not headed to the Grand Prix, there’s a chance to catch the U Got It Bad hitmaker in Dubai, as first up he’ll be taking to the stage at Meydan superclub White Dubai on Saturday, November 30. He’ll then be closing the show at Yas Island’s MAD on Sunday, December 1. We’re sure we can expect a string of his biggest smash hits including Yeah, Love In This Club and U Remind Me.

Entry prices to Mad will be Dhs200 for ladies with one drink and Dhs500 for guys with two drinks. As well as some awesome hit songs, the R&B singer is known for his dance moves – so buckle up for an epic performance.

This weekend won’t be the first time Usher has visited the UAE – last time he was here was back in January 2019 where he tackled the world’s longest zipline in Ras al Khaimah.

Also confirmed to perform at MAD is R&B singer Ne-Yo, on Saturday, November 30. Entry prices will be Dhs150 for ladies with one drink and Dhs300 for guys with two drinks. We’re not yet sure if the superstar singer will also perform in Dubai, so stay tuned for further announcements.

Other performers at various venues around the Yas Island Circuit over the race weekend include Lana Del Rey, Marshmello, Tyga and Trey Songz, plus Mr Brightside hitmakers, The Killers. So, it’s set to be a huge weekend of music.
