The first of Abu Dhabi’s four nights of concerts has been announced: enduring electro Essex boys Depeche Mode are headlining after the race.
Previous headliners include Eminem, Prince, Aerosmith and Paul McCartney.
DM’s Delta Machine world tour, which is currently in Israel, is all about the big venues (I’ve already got tickets for Stade de France) and Yas’ Ferrari World is no different, packing in up to 40,000. However, for those that like their gigs a little more intimate I’ve heard rumours that DM will be at the Nurburgring in July to play a special acoustic set in the F1 paddock, as guests of Lotus and Columbia Records.
They’re big in Germany, second only to The Hoff.
