The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is noted as one of UAE’s most celebrated events. The secret behind the success is mostly because of the biggest names that grace the F1 event, including Sam Smith, the Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar, and Calvin Harris. This year, Abu Dhabi welcomes US Rapper Travis Scott who is gearing up to take the Du Arena Stage and perform his hits Goosebumps as well as Antidote on Friday November 29. Las Vegas’ indie band The Killers, who have previously performed at the Emirates Palace back in 2009, will be joining Scott in the capital’s epic concert. Enjoy the live music with ticket prices starting at AED699.

Kylie Minogue for Dubai Rugby Sevens

This year, the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens will be celebrating its 50th anniversary, and in honor of this occasion, Grammy award-winning artist Kylie Minogue has been announced as the headliner. The event, which will take place at the Sevens Stadium on December 6, is pulling out all the stops to make this one special. Kylie Minogue has sold a multitude of albums – 80 million to be precise – over her 30-year career, and she still looks young as the day. Expect to leave with Minogue’s catchy tunes Can’t Get You Out of My Head and Spinnin’ Around stuck in your mind. Tickets begin at AED400 and include all the rugby action as well as the much-awaited concert.
