Last week it was announced that Rihanna would be entertaining the crowds at the F1 Singapore Grand Prix – and now her somewhat shorter pal Justin Bieber has joined her on the exciting entertainment line up.
Excited squeals could be heard across Singapore as it was announced that the Girlfriend singer would be headlining the Padang Stage on Monday 23 September 2013. Justin will be finishing off the huge racing event with a special closing concert, bopping around and making impressive high-pitched noises for those with tickets to Zone 4 (more information on the release of those walkabout tickets below).
While we’re yet to discover which ‘famous Asian’ act will be headlining the opening show on Friday night, The Killers have been confirmed as the main event on the Padang Stage (Zone 4) on Saturday evening.
Rihanna will be also be strutting around the Padang Stage (Zone 4) – but as the Sunday night headliner after the main F1 race. Be prepared to see lots of flesh and hear the word ‘diamond’ loads.
Other artists have been announced as part of the Grand Prix’s entertainment line up, including Bob Geldof, who will be rocking out on the Village stage on Friday night (only accessible to Zone 1 ticket holders). Welsh legend Tom Jones will be performing at the Village Stage (Zone 1) on Sunday – belting out hits including Delilah and, er, Sex Bomb. UK breakthrough artist Laura Mvula will be performing at the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre on Friday (Zone 4) and the Village Stage on Saturday (Zone 1).
If that’s not quite enough for you (greedy much?), famous illusionist Dynamo will be strolling around Zone 1 and 4, entertaining the unsuspecting crowds with his super awesome magic tricks.

And if you’re hoping to get your hands on the single-day Zone 4 tickets, you’ll be chuffed to know that they finally go on sale on Thursday June 6 2013 at 10am. The walkabout tickets for Friday (S$68), Saturday (S$148) and Sunday ($178) – as well as tickets to Monday’s Closing Concert – will be available on the F1 website – so make sure you set an alarm and have the ‘refresh’ button at the ready.
