Bryan Adams, Gipsy Kings and Belgian DJ duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are set to rock crowds at the Saudi International tournament, which begins on Thursday, January 30.

The stars will head to King Abdullah Economic City at the end of the month for a trio of music concerts to support the world-renowned golfing competition.

The gigs will be held on three consecutive nights until the tournament ends on Saturday, February 1.

On the Thursday, Belgian DJ duo Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike will take over the KAEC's outdoor venue. The award-winning brothers – who have worked with the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Gucci Mane, Diplo, Snoop Dogg, Martin Garrix – are known for their anthems, including Higher Place, Tremor and Mammoth, and were named the World's No. 1 DJs in 2019 in the annual Top 100 DJs Poll.

Italian DJ Marco Carola, who rose to fame as a pioneer in the 1990's electronic scene, will also join the pair on stage that night to perform a set.

On Friday, Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams brings top tunes, such as Summer of 69 and (Everything I Do) I Do it For You, to the Saudi crowds. He'll be joined by Grammy Award-winning DJ and record producer Zedd, who's worked with big names such as Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande and Katy Perry.

The legendary Gipsy Kings, an award-winning flamenco band, will be bringing the Latin rhythms on the Saturday, performing their biggest hits, such as Bamboleo, Hotel California and Volare.

Puerto Rican star Luis Fonsi of Despacito fame completes the line-up, making his Saudi Arabian debut.

Yasir O Al Rumayyan, chairman of the Saudi Golf Federation and Golf Saudi, said: “Not only will we welcome the world’s leading golfers and draw the attention of hundreds of millions of viewers from across the globe, off the course we will witness acts from some of the best-selling musicians of all time. It’s going to be an incredible week and, with so many other activities taking place for people of all ages, one that provides the ultimate day out whether you are currently a golfer or not.”
