Default Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Concert

Have you seen who will be headlining this year's massive event? None other than the kings of British electro-rock (whatever that is)...Depeche Mode. What an unadulterated let down of the highest order! Yet more geriatrics trying to line their pension funds.

Are you kidding me?

I saw DM at the O2 in, erm, 2010? Yeah, 2010. They were unbelievable.

Way before my years but still producing incredible music.

This just seals it for me, definitely going again this year.

So do I but surely they would be more suitable performing down the Irish Village with a few pints rather than as the main headline act for a global event.

I can see your point but as Scamp says they are still pretty huge in the UK, they have cult following.

Four acts headling four nights this year and I believe one night will be a ME entertainer. Rumours about the Stones coming, so some real geriatrics there.
