Guess who? Organizers tease Abu Dhabi Grand Prix concert act with puzzle

DUBAI: The organizers behind the Yasalam After-Race Concerts at the F1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix have just teased their third headliner with a cryptic post on Instagram.

The organizers posted a video on social media in the form of a crossword puzzle, in which each word is the name of one of the artist’s famous songs.

Can you take a guess as to who it will be?

It seems that Nov. 28’s headline performed is set to be US DJ Marshmello as the words “Happier,” “Wolves,” “Friends,”  “Alone” and “Silence” — all hit songs by the DJ — fit perfectly into the crossword.

Already on this year’s bill are rapper Travis Scott, set to headline on Nov. 29, and The Killers, who will take to the stage on Dec. 1.

Salah said he is “so excited to be working with the artists of Madame Tussauds on my first ever figure.” 
In a video he posted on Twitter, the Liverpool favorite said the wax figure will be unveiled at the end of the year.
Madame Tussauds also posted “behind the scenes” photos of Salah’s sitting, in which he is seen posing playfully with eyeballs used for figures. 
When contacted by Arab News, Madame Tussauds declined to reveal any further information, but referred to a statement by its General Manager Steve Davies, who said the announcement “is sure to be a crowd-pleaser for football lovers around the world.”
Davies added: “As Egyptian Forward and currently both European and World Club Champion with Liverpool FC, Mo Salah is a global star at the peak of his power. We know that fans will love seeing him at the home of celebrity, where he rightly belongs.”
Salah will continue to work collaboratively with Madame Tussauds throughout the creation of his replica.
