American singer, songwriter and producer, Post Malone took Abu Dhabi by storm as the first headline act of the 2018 Yasalam after race concerts taking place at du Arena, Yas Island, during the Formula 1 2018 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend.
The night was still ‘Too Young’ when Post opened his incredible set with one of his biggest radio hits, titled the same, to an arena filled with racing heartbeats and vibrant purple and blue stage lights that flared like ‘Candy Paint’, illuminating the exuberant faces of the thousands of fans in attendance at du Arena who were screaming the rapper’s nickname, ‘Posty’.
Drawing choruses of cheers from the crowds, the certified quadruple platinum singer songwriter and producer then went on to perform his chart-topping hit ‘Better Now’ which shattered streaming records and landed him a number 3 on the Billboard charts. The charismatic megastar continued to keep du Arena alive with energy during a live rendition of the Billboard award winning track, ‘Psycho’ which had the crowd hanging on to each syllable of the track, singing it back to the Rockstar. Post continued to delight fans, going on to perform ‘Candy Paint’, ‘I Fall Apart’ and ‘Paranoid’. Malone then went on to strip the set back for one track, performing an acoustic rendition of ‘Stay’, where he slowed the pace down and sent the crowd swaying.
In a move that sent shock waves across the crowd, Post then introduced a surprise guest, none other than Moroccan rap artist, French Montana, who joined Post on stage to blast out smash hit, ‘Unforgettable’, before Malone shook the stadium with fan favourite, ‘Rockstar’.
Wrapping up the incredible set with a momentous final track, Malone performed ‘Congratulations’ from his album ‘Stony’, leaving the crowd cheering for more. His performance was no ‘Deja Vu’ to the throngs of adoring fans who had the chance to swipe up their experience and get up-close and personal with their favourite R&B singer, granting them the best possible access to the megastar.
Post was complimentary of his time in Abu Dhabi, telling the crowd he was loving his first visit to the Capital and that so far he was having a ‘kick a$$ time’ and that they were the ‘best crowd in the universe’, giving them a pep talk inspiring enough to encourage any young musician to follow their dreams.
The night didn’t end until ‘Posty’ had the chance to give Golden Circle fans, who had access to the best possible experience, one last rush of adrenaline as he ran past handing out high fives to his new favourite crowd.
Supported by du Live an Huawei, the 10th edition of the Yasalam After-Race Concerts will come to a close on November 25th as legendary Californian rock group Guns N’ Roses take to the stage, promising to put on a ‘One in a Million’ show.
