American rock band Guns N’ Roses will play on the Sunday night (November 25) of the Yasalam After-Race Concert during the 2018 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, event organisers announced on Tuesday.

“Welcome to the jungle…@gunsnroses are confirmed to bring a downpour of November Rain to #Yasalam 2018 on Sunday 25,” read a tweet from Yasalam, referencing two of the bands most famous and recognisable songs.

In April, Yasalam’s organisers announced that Grammy-award winning Canadian R&B star The Weeknd will play on the Friday night of the event.

Two more artists are expected to be announced over the course of the next few months.

Access to the four nights of Yasalam After-Race Concerts is limited to F1 ticket holders. A three-day ticket provides access to all four concerts.

Tickets purchased before May 31 are available a discount of up to 30 percent.
