Get ready to rock because the Foo Fighters were announced as the final headliner for the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix post-race concerts. The rock band is the fourth act to be hitting the stage at the highly anticipated Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix Yasalam post-race concerts.
This will be a UAE debut for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame group. The long-time band, featuring Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Chris Shiflett, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear and Rami Jaffee, released their debut self-titled album in 1995, and are known for hits such as “My Hero,” “Best of You” and “These Days.” Let’s not forget they have 12 Grammy Awards.
The iconic musicians are the only band on this year’s exciting F1 music roster, and they round out some major international talent. Stormzy was recently revealed as the third headliner, joining previously announced F1 2021 performers Lewis Capaldi and Khalid at the Yasalam post-race concerts.
The UAE capital will be bursting with the international musical talent at the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix Yasalam post-race concerts. Khalid will get the F1 musical party started on Thursday, December 9. This will be Stormzy’s first appearance in Abu Dhabi on the Etihad Park stage when he steps out for his gig on Friday, December 10. On Saturday, December 11, Lewis Capaldi will take to the stage then the Foo Fighters will be the final performance on December 12.

It was revealed in September 2021 that Khalid and Capaldi were two of the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix post-race concert headlining musical acts. Since then, fans have been wanting to know who is performing at the F1 2021 post-race concerts in Abu Dhabi and with a month until the races, we have the full headlining set.
Fans will have more opportunities to move to the music at the F1 concerts because Etihad Park will return to full capacity for the Yasalam After-Race concerts, and all ticketholders will now have access to the Thursday concert, headlined by Khalid.
Additionally, single-day ticket holders will have access to the concert on the day they have their Abu Dhabi Grand Prix ticket. Have a two-day ticket? You’ll be able to see the 2021 F1 concerts on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Three-day ticket holders will have access to all post-race entertainment so get ready to sing.
One-day ticket holders now have the option to upgrade their tickets to two- or three-day tickets so they can attend a concert that’s different from their current day, and are able to select from any of the four artists.
