R&B songstress Rihanna and the rock band The Killers will headline this year’s concert series at the Singapore Grand Prix, event organisers have announced.
Rihanna – famous as much for her singing, bad taste in boyfriends and shocking acting skills – will be the main act in the post-race concert on Sunday night.
A winner of six Grammy and seven Billboard awards, she has sold over 40 million albums worldwide, and has included a stopover in the city state as part of her ‘Diamonds’ world tour.
The Barbados-born singer is currently the most successful music artist in the digital era, boasting upwards of 63 million Facebook fans, 29 million Twitter followers and almost 3 billion views on YouTube.
The post-qualifying concert will be headlined by American rock band The Killers, who have sold over 17 million albums worldwide with hits such as ‘Somebody Told Me’ and ‘Mr Brightside’.
Now approaching its sixth running, the Singapore Grand Prix has traditionally been a drawcard for major international artists at its post-F1 concerts, including the likes of Katy Perry and Kylie Minogue in previous years. The Grand Prix takes place on the weekend of 21-22 September.
