The British singer joins urban star The Weeknd and rockers Guns N’ Roses for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend
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.
