Black Eyed Peas' Race-y Show
A host of star-studded concerts are to take place to coincide with the Formula 1 season, with Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce Knowles and N.E.R.D performing at the Singapore Grand Prix next month.
Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce Knowles and N.E.R.D. are to perform at the Singapore Grand Prix.
The event - which will also feature performances from ZZ Top, Simple Minds, Chinese singer Jacky Cheung, Taiwanese hip-hop band Da Mouth and Taiwanese pop band Sodagreen - is to be the first of eight F1 Rocks concerts planned by Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone to tie in with races across the season.
The billionaire said: "It's exciting and something I have been thinking about for a long while.
"Drivers are rock stars. The slight difference is they risk their lives. Musicians love racing and drivers love music.
"Singapore couldn't be a better place to launch F1 Rocks. They're well, well ahead of anyone else in the world in my opinion."
As well as the concerts - which will be screened worldwide across 188 countries - there will also be a host of famous names and racing stars appearing, and a behind-the-scenes show will also be broadcast.
The first event will take place on the days of September 24-26 at Fort Canning Park, in Singapore.
The Singapore Grand Prix takes place on September 27.
