Bri­tish pop star Sam Smith is the lat­est name con­firmed for the F1 week­end in Novem­ber

Brit singer-song­writer Sam Smith is the third artist an­nounced to per­form at the 2018 F1 Af­ter-Race Con­certs. The pop­star will bring his soul­ful sound to Abu Dhabi for the first time on Satur­day Novem­ber 24.

Smith rose to fame as the vo­cal­ist on UK dance act Dis­clo­sure’s Latch in 2012, and went on to see his 2014 de­but al­bum, In The Lonely Hour, win him four Gram­mys and five top ten sin­gles in the UK charts.

His emo­tion­ally-charged sin­gles in­clude Stay With Me, Lay Me Down and I’m Not The Only One, and they’ve helped him be­come one of pop’s most recog­nised voices of the past few years.

The singer only re­leased mu­sic again in 2017, af­ter spend­ing two years work­ing on his sec­ond stu­dio al­bum, The Thrill Of It All.

The first sin­gle from his sec­ond al­bum, Too Good At Good­byes, de­buted at num­ber one in the UK charts, and was fol­lowed up by the hugely suc­cess­ful One Last Song, and Pray. The fourth sin­gle from the al­bum, Baby You Make Me Crazy, was re­leased in late June.

Smith joins the al­ready an­nounced ur­ban star The Weeknd, who will per­form on Fri­day Novem­ber 23, and leg­endary rock­ers Guns N’ Roses, who will close the show on Sun­day Novem­ber 25. A fourth artist is still to be an­nounced later in the year.
