The Killers have been signed up to headline the Yasalam after-race concert at the F1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on December 1, the closing night. 

Ten years since their last visit to Abu Dhabi, and six years after their Dubai show, the Las Vegas-based electro-rock giants will take to the stage at the Du Arena on Yas Island.

Fans of the four-piece, led by singer/keyboardist Brandon Flowers, can look forward to huge hits like ‘Mr Brightside’ and ‘Somebody Told Me’, as well as the anthemic song ‘All These Things That I’ve Done’, which has been referenced by the likes of U2 and Coldplay.

The Killers will be joined by US rapper Travis Scott who is set to perform at the same venue on the Friday (November 29), the first night of the international acts.

The Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix weekend takes place between November 29 and December 1. This year’s event includes an auction, where people can buy a whole host of super cars and F1 vehicles for the first time.

Tickets are already on sale and can be bought at the Yas Marina Circuit's official website
