It’s New Year’s Eve in Abu Dhabi and for most music fans in the capital that means just one thing – Coldplay at du Arena.
Flash Entertainment, the company behind the sold-out spectacular, has announced in the hours leading up to the concert that the popular British rock band fronted by Chris Martin will take to the stage at Yas Island from 10pm.
Doors at the venue will open from 7.30pm with The Head Full of Dreams tour setlist to be preceded by entertainment from DJ Saif & Sound, who will perform from 8.45pm.
Concertgoers are reminded by the organisers to take cash with them, so as to avoid queues for food and beverage.
Coldplay last performed in the UAE in 2011. Their New Year’s Eve performance in Abu Dhabi was the fastest selling event in the history of Flash Entertainment. The venue holds 25,000 people.
