Sweet Child O’ Mine, the latest superstar act announced for this year's Abu Dhabi F1 extravaganza is a huge one.

Rock icons Guns N’ Roses were this morning (May 8) revealed to be the second name on what will be a star-studded bill for the biggest weekend in the capital’s calendar.

They will play du Arena on Sunday, November 25 after the final Grand Prix of the season.

It’s a massive coup to get the world-class rockers to perform in the capital and the announcement is sure to excite fans in the UAE.

We can expect to hear them belt out anthems such as November Rain and Welcome to the Jungle when they come to rock the F1 weekend.

The news was announced at a press conference held by Flash Entertainment and Yas Marina Circuit at Yas Mall Town Centre.

Last month, Canadian singer The Weeknd was the first name revealed for the Yasalam concerts. He will play Du Arena on Friday, November 23.

The pineapple-haired 28-year-old is known for crowd-pleasing tunes such as Love Me Harder, Earned It and Starboy.

Guns N’ Roses last appeared in the UAE as part of their mega Not In This Lifetime world tour.

They appeared in Dubai in March 2017 and will be hoping not to get caught in traffic this time around, as many fans missed the start of that show.

This year will mark the milestone 10th anniversary of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix - now cemented as the fantastic finale to the F1 season - and organisers are clearly pulling out all the stops to make it bigger and better than ever.

The big race itself will take place on Sunday, November 25, with the four-day Yasalam concert series getting out of the blocks on Friday, November 23.

Motoring and music enthusiasts can bag a 30 percent discount on tickets for the F1 bonanza - which include access to the massive gigs as well as the racing action - if they book their seat before May 31.

For the first time ever, a Super Parks Pass will be on sale, which will include access to Yas Waterworld, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and the soon-to-launch Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi alongside tickets for the racing itself.

Using the theme of ‘Swipe Up’, Yas Marina Circuit will this year give fans the opportunity to buying tickets in preferred seats in one of five available grandstands when buying online.

Tickets are available online at www.yasmarinacircuit.com and through the Yas Marina Circuit Call Centre (800 927) or (02 659 9800), as well as through all Etihad Shops and Virgin Megastores, Yas Central Express stand at Yas Mall.
