British pop group Take That has announced a special Saturday race day performance as part of the Mubadala Abu Dhabi Sail Grand Prix, which takes place from 13 to 14 January 2024.

The trio, known for hits such as Back For Good and Shine, will come to the UAE and perform a set for fans upon the conclusion of SailGP’s high-speed racing at Mina Zayed on 13 January, 2024.

SailGP describes Take That’s appearance as a ‘historic moment’ as it will be the first time the global league has combined its high-speed racing action with live music entertainment.

Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen return to the UAE promises huge hits like Shine, Relight My Fire and Rule The World, alongside songs from their new album This Life, released in November.

“This is another extremely exciting announcement,” says Andrew Thompson, managing director at SailGP. “We cannot wait to arrive in Abu Dhabi for the first time to entertain and engage with new fans and families in particular, from all across the world. From the adrenaline-fuelled racing to a host of not-to-be-missed activations to global music stars, Abu Dhabi is going to be a truly memorable weekend for everyone on-site.”
