It’s been confirmed that hip hop star, Travis Scott will be headlining at the Yasalam After-Race Concert at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2019.
The superstar will perform at du Arena, Yas Island, on Friday, November 29.
the second of four after race concerts.
Before the announcement, Yas Marina Circuit released a clue on their Instagram page featuring 3 emojis; a cactus, an eagle, and a flame.
This all seemed to point to one star –American rapper, Travis Scott.
Scott goes by the names La Flame as well as Cactus Jack.
What also probably gave the game away was that he released his Air Jordan 1 “Cactus Jack” limited-edition sneakers with Nike in 2018..
Scott also had a mega A-list birthday party recently which had a ‘Cactus Jack’ theme and it looks like the eagle refers to some of his previous shows, where he’s taken to the top of an eagle to perform.

If you’ve been to or seen anything on social media about Scott’s ASTROWORLD tour you’d know that it was nothing short of amazing, so visitors to the F1 can expect a great performance in Abu Dhabi later this year.
