Queen + Adam Lambert, Kylie Minogue to perform at 2016 Singapore Grand Prix

by

American a cappella group Pentatonix, British indie rock band Bastille and 70s disco icon KC and the Sunshine Band are also booked to perform.

KYLIE-QUEEN

Australian popstar Kylie Minogue and British rock band Queen, together with American Idol runner up Adam Lambert, will perform at this year’s Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Grand Prix, held from September 16-18.

 

The entertainment lineup for the event also features indie band Bastille, a cappella group Pentatonix, as well as disco kings KC and the Sunshine Band. Other acts, including the headline act for the final race on Sep 18, will be announced at a later date.

 

At Padang Stage of the Marina Bay Street Circuit, fans can catch Kylie Minogue and Queen + Adam Lambert after the last track activities on Sept 16 and 17 respectively.

This year, the Padang stage will be relocated between Padang Grandstand A and Grandstand B to allow ticketholders to enjoy a more up-close experience. 

 

Michael Roche, Executive Director of Singapore GP, said: “The front of house that controls spotlights and audio towers will be tucked in front of the heritage trees on Connaught Drive so we don’t lose valuable viewing space behind the towers. Overall, the patrons furthest from stage will be much closer than in past years. We will also install additional ‘superscreens’ on the far right and left of the stage to give a wider viewing opportunity for races and concerts which will take the concert experience all the way into the Esplanade Park.”

 

Lambert last performed in Singapore at Mediacorp’s Celebrate 2016 countdown on New Year’s Eve.

Friday 16 September
