Travellers planning Abu Dhabi holidays with the hopes of attending the famed Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will be pleased to learn that U.S. rap star Eminem has recently been confirmed as the closing act for the Yasalam After-Race Concert. Eminem is scheduled to perform on Sunday 4th November 2012 at the du Arena at Yas Island, however those interested should not that the concert will be exclusive to F1 ticket holders only.

Eminem is considered to be one of the world’s most popular artists with over 90 million albums sold worldwide on the back of hit songs including “Lose Yourself”, “The Real Slim Shady”, “Not Afraid” and his latest hit featuring Rhianna “Love the Way You Lie”. Eminem’s list of accolades include 13 Grammy awards, being the first rapper to ever win an Academy Award (Best Original Song), being widely acknowledged as one of the top artists of the 2000s with his latest album Recovery named the best selling album of 2010 and his tenth Number 1 album on the Billboard charts.

Other famous artist scheduled to perform include Kylie Minogue and Nickelback.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing Eminem. He is a music icon, and fans have wanted to see him perform in the UAE for a very long time. We’re excited to answer fans’ wishes and deliver what looks set to be an incredible After Race Concert… Having Kylie Minogue and Nickelback alongside Eminem for the after-race concerts this year is quite exciting for FLASH.
