As anticipation builds ahead of Abu Dhabi Showdown Week - the week-long series of entertainment and lifestyle events created by the Department of Culture & Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) to support the UAE capital’s mega UFC? 242 event on September 7 - an all-new ‘Ultimate Access’ package has been created for music and mixed martial arts fans.
With tickets to UFC? 242 sold out in all categories, the ‘Ultimate Access’ package includes a single Category 2 ticket to UFC? 242 and Platinum standing tickets to the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ concert on September 4 and Colombian reggaeton sensation J Balvin’s gig on September 5. Both concerts will be held at The Arena – the all-new indoor venue on Yas Island that will also stage UFC? 242.
