Bon Jovi, Jimmy Cliff and more added to Singapore concert bill

11 Jun 2015

Fans attending this September’s 2015 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix will be able to catch award-winning American rock band Bon Jovi, Jamaican singer-songwriter Jimmy Cliff, Swedish band Dirty Loops and Singapore’s hottest pop band The Sam Willows.

All four have been added to the venue’s race weekend concert line-up, joining previously announced artistes Pharrell Williams, Maroon 5 and Spandau Ballet. They complete the main entertainment bill on Singapore’s Padang, Village and Coyote Stages.

Having sold 130 million records and performed to more than 37 million fans across 2,900 concerts in over 55 countries, Bon Jovi have also been named the number one touring act in the world four times in the last five years. Free access to their concert on the Padang stage is included with any Sunday race ticket.

With 33 albums, 10 singles and a career spanning 50 years, Jimmy Cliff is considered one of the most influential artists in global music culture. His hits such as ‘Wonderful World, Beautiful People’, ‘Vietnam’, ‘You Can Get It If You Really Want’, ‘Many Rivers to Cross’, and ‘I Can See Clearly Now’ have opened doors for reggae music to be embraced worldwide. Access to Cliff’s concert on the Coyote stage is included with any Friday ticket.

Dirty Loops made a name for themselves with their twisted pop covers of Lady Gaga's ‘Just Dance’ in 2010 that attracted over 100,000 YouTube views and 10,000 Facebook shares in the first two months of release via word of mouth, the group's videos have now garnered a total of 19 million YouTube views to date. Saturday ticket holders can see them on the Coyote Stage.

Singapore's hottest pop band The Sam Willows will return to the Marina Bay Street Circuit, fresh from the recording of their debut album, set to release in the third quarter with Swedish producer Harry Sommerdahl (Pussycat Dolls, The Wanted and The Rasmus). They will play to Friday race-goers on the Coyote Stage.

Tickets for the 2015 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix are available for sale in the F1 Ticket Store.
