An Instagram and Tweet published on the official Yasalam social media channels stated that: “Due to unforeseen medical circumstances, The Foo Fighters will not be performing at the AbuDhabiGP Yasalam After-Race Concert on Sunday 12 December.
“The band apologizes for any inconvenience or disappointment caused by this unexpected turn of events.
But the historic #F1Finale weekend still goes on with its #NewMoves, vibrant atmosphere, and racing action as we look forward to settle the most intense title fight and crown a champion tomorrow right here #InAbuDhabi.”
The after-race concerts, which have been taking place every night since December 9 at Yas Island’s newly-renamed Etihad Park, have been a roaring success thus far, kicking off with US star Khalid on December 9, who performed a string of hits, including 8teen and Twenty One. Meanwhile, Day 2 saw UK grime music sensation Stormzy take the same stage on Friday, December 10, with Lewis Capaldi set to grace the stage tonight (December 11).
