Glasgow music star Lewis Capaldi in six figure sum deal to play F1 finale at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi

Glasgow singing sensation, Lewis Capaldi, will headline the one off concert on Saturday.

Award winning Glasgow singer songwriter, Lewis Capaldi, will headline a special one off concert the day before the final race of the 2021 Formula One season at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.

Grammy nominated, Capaldi, 25, abandoned all social media channels earlier this year to concentrate on the follow up to his 2019 debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent.

Incidentally, Capaldi has not played a live concert in two years which means those lucky enough to have snagged tickets to Sunday’s F1 showdown are in for a real treat.

Mercedes driver and seven time world champion, Sir Lewis Hamilton, 36, and Red Bull’s Belgian-Dutch driving sensation, Max Verstappen, 24, both go into Sunday’s eagerly awaited climax level on points.

It is the first time in several years that the drivers’ championship will be decided on the final day of the racing calendar.
