The revolutionary rapper, Eminem, with his larger-than-life stage presence and flawless rhymes will rock your socks off in the UAE in the final Yasalam After-Race Concert.

The biggest selling rappers will hit the du Arena, Yas Island, Abu Dhabi to bring the F1 weekend to a stunning climax.

Eminem will perform on Sunday 4th November, after the 2012 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Now in its fourth year, the Sunday finale concert has become a landmark event for Abu Dhabi and a fitting finish to one of the most eagerly awaited sporting events in the region.

Eminem is one of the most popular artists in the world, selling more than 90 million albums worldwide and being recognized as the best-selling artist of the 2000’s. 

The multi-talented star has achieved success as a rapper, record producer, songwriter and actor. 

He was the first rapper to win an Academy Award (for Best Original Song), adding to his 13 Grammys.  His last album, 'Recovery', was the best-selling album of the year in 2010 and became his tenth album to reach Number 1 on the Billboard charts. 

His chart-topping singles include Lose Yourself, The Real Slim Shady, Not Afraid and Love the Way You Lie.

The Yasalam After-Race Concerts are staged at the du Arena, Yas Island, exclusively for F1 ticket holders. 

Race tickets include the Y1 Access package, which gives value-added benefits during the race weekend, including access to all three Yasalam After-Race Concerts, as well as exclusive live concert ticket discounts running throughout the year.

Full details of the whole Yasalam programme, including Live Across the City, Live on the Corniche and Live on Yas Island, will be announced on Tuesday 18th September.

In a change to previous years, 2012 race-goers will need to visit Yas Marina Circuit each day to collect their concert wristband, to get access to the Yasalam After-Race Concerts.

Kylie Minogue is going to rock Abu Dhabi this F1 season.

The Australian superstar Kylie Minogue will perform for two of this year’s three Yasalam After-Race Concerts.
