ABU DHABI, UAE (August 5, 2015) � The rock stars of global golf make Abu Dhabi Golf Club their canvas each January and now the club is set to become a regular stage for some of the world�s hottest musicians.

Grammy Award-winning DJ and record-producer Mark Ronson and the Englishman�s chart-topping compatriot Labrinth will headline the first Green Grooves Abu Dhabi concert at the renowned European Tour golf venue on October 22.

The big-name Sony Music artists will spearhead what Abu Dhabi GC intends becoming an on-going roll-call of top international acts at the club with Green Grooves Abu Dhabi concerts planned for February, early May and October each year.

Ronson achieved his first UK and U.S. chart-topping single last year with �Uptown Funk� which featured vocals from Bruno Mars. The track earned Ronson a Brit Award for British Single of the Year while his fourth studio album, Uptown Special, released in January, became his first UK No.1 album. Ronson has also produced on multi-platform, Grammy Award-winning albums for artists such as Amy Winehouse and Adele and has collaborated with Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney, among others.

One of nine siblings who grew up surrounded by the sound of American gospel music, Labrinth is one of the UK�s brightest, multifaceted talents. The singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and record producer is well known for his collaboration with English rapper Tinie Tempah; their track �Earthquake� went to No.2 in the UK singles chart. Labrinth�s first No.1 single came in November 2012 with �Beneath your Beautiful� featuring Emeli Sande.

Abu Dhabi GC general manager Paul Booth, part of the team that created the Green Grooves Abu Dhabi concept, is thrilled to have lined up two such prestigious international acts for what shapes as a blockbusting start to the all-new concert series.

�Green Grooves Abu Dhabi is going to combine fantastic live music from international and local artists with the very best service in a truly iconic outdoor setting here at Abu Dhabi Golf Club,� said Mr. Booth.

�We�re delighted that Mark Ronson and Labrinth have agreed to headline the very first Green Grooves Abu Dhabi concert. What a way to kick start the weekend...we�re looking forward to a great night.
