Beyonce, Aerosmith to play at Abu Dhabi F1 race
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - September 28, 2009 Flash Entertainment said Monday the performers will open and close the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend next month. Beyonce is slated to kick off the festivities on Thursday, Oct. 29. Aerosmith will wrap things up three days later. But the only way fans in the conservative Gulf city can see them is to buy tickets to the F1 race. Concerts are also planned for Friday and Saturday, though the headliners haven't been announced. Some of the attractions planned around the Emirati capital's first Formula One race include outdoor movies and free concerts - including one by hip-hop producer Timbaland - on the city's Persian Gulf beachfront.
