Beyonce in Abu Dhabi

Beyonce, Nelly Furtado, No Doubt and Aerosmith rumoured to be playing Grand Prix

According to a story published today in a UAE daily newspaper, Beyonce, Nelly Furtado, No Doubt and Aerosmith will all be performing at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in October/November.

The reports have been categorically denied by organisers Flash Entertainment: "Flash Entertainment can confirm there will be a fantastic line-up of artists performing on Yas Island during the race weekend. Media speculation appearing today announcing Yas Island concerts is factually incorrect in the reporting of artist line-up, capacities, ticket holder access and location of performances"

Despite the rumours, which are also circulating on social networking site Twitter, Flash have insisted they will make no further announcement until Monday September 28.

The rumoured line-up starts with a performance by US R&B star beyonce on Thursday 29th, followed by Nelly Furtado on Friday 30th, No Doubt on Saturday 31st and Aerosmith on Sunday November 1st. U2 were thought to have been on the line-up before organisers decided that they were too big and would overshadow the race itself.
