We told you so - US lovelies confirmed as final act for Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
We told you this AGES ago but now the good news has been confirmed. The Kings of Leon will play Abu Dhabi on October 31.
The band will rock the capital as part of the Yasalam series of concerts during the inaugural grand prix.
The band, who hail from Tennessee, are the final act to be confirmed to be playing on Yas Island, following previous confirmation of Beyonce, Aerosmith and Jamiroquai.
They will play after the qualifying sessions for the race next to the Ferrari World theme park. Only fans with two or three-day tickets to the race will have access to the concert.
John Lickrish, managing director of Flash Entertainment, who are organising the concerts, said: "We are thrilled to have secured Kings of Leon to perform in Abu Dhabi for the post-race crowd. To attract a band of their stature who are in such great demand the world over is a tremendous coup for Flash and for the city. Their popularity is phenomenal and we are delighted that they are coming to perform at the Yasalam after-race concerts on Yas Island."

so if we don't go to watch a bunch of fast cars race around a track, we can't buy tickets separately for just the concert? it's a bit absurd to me that fans of jamiroquai and leon will dish out 500 dollars just to go see them.
