Will perform at Abu Dhabi Showdown Week on September 4
The Abu Dhabi Showdown Week from September 1-7 continues to add to its line-up. A series of events building up to UFC 242 on September 7 – featuring the UFC lightweight championship title unification bout between current champ Khabib Nurmagomedov and interim champ Dustin Poirier – there are pool parties, meet-and-greets, fan experience zones, and shopping and restaurant deals to be found all over the city.
Two concert nights have just been announced as part of the activities. The first is Wednesday, September 4, with California rockers the Red Hot Chili Peppers playing their first ever UAE concert at The Arena, a new indoor venue on Yas Island. Another big-name act performing on the following night will be announced soon.
Tickets for the Red Hot Chili Peppers are on sale now from ticketmaster.ae. There are a number of categories, priced AED250-995. Tickets for the UFC night are sold out, but some hotel and ticket packages are still available from the website.
Another event to look out for is the first Abu Dhabi Muscle and Fitness Expo, running from September 5-7 at du Forum on Yas Island.
