Diriyah E-Prix to feature two major concert nights

Saudi Arabia’s Diriyah E-Prix, a Formula E racing event, will feature two nights of concerts featuring global superstars on November 22 and 23.

 Last year saw incredible scenes as David Guetta, One Republic, the Black Eyed Peas, Amr Diab, Enrique Iglesias and Jason Derulo lit up the UNESCO World Heritage site on the outskirts of Riyadh in an amazing line-up which heralded the first unsegregated concerts in Saudi Arabia.

“If you were one of the 40,000 who were lucky enough to be part of that watershed moment for the Kingdom, believe me you have not seen anything yet,” said HH Prince Abdulaziz Bin Turki AlFaisal Al Saud, chairman of the General Sports Authority (GSA) of Saudi Arabia.

“Last year we told people before we announced they should get their tickets early to avoid disappointment, once we revealed who was coming the tickets sold out incredibly quickly. This year will be the same but even bigger so for music fans who want to enjoy the biggest concerts in Saudi the smart move is to get your ticket now.”

The announcement of the first global act will be made on November 13.
