Rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers will make their debut in the UAE with a concert to headline Abu Dhabi Showdown Week, a seven-day series of events set to run alongside UFC 242, which will take place in the UAE capital on September 7.  

Organised by the Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi), the inaugural Abu Dhabi Showdown Week will run from September 1 to 7, and feature city-wide events and activations including pool and beach parties, retail promotions and F&B deals at beach clubs, nightclubs, hotels and malls, with the famous Californian rockers providing an awesome highlight on 4 September. 

Taking place at The Arena, a new indoor venue being constructed on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island, the Chili Peppers’ concert will be followed on September 5 by another concert, with the mystery act yet to be announced.

The two concerts, along with the other city-wide activations and the main event on 7 September, will reinforce Abu Dhabi’s growing status as an entertainment capital, strengthening the emirate’s standing as an internationally renowned leisure destination and a hub for major, globally significant events.
