Asia’s reigning R&B king JAY CHOU will be staging a one-night only race-themed concert on Friday, 21 September at the Marina Bay Street Circuit. Chou is the latest addition to Singapore GP’s stellar entertainment line-up, following the recent announcement that Maroon 5 will perform on the Saturday. Fans can access both concerts at the Padang stage as well as all other entertainment in Zone 4 with any 2012 FORMULA 1 SINGTEL SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX ticket, priced from S$178 for a three-day Zone 4 Walkabout.

Jay Chou’s latest album Wow that combines Middle Eastern tones with American rap, Peking Opera and beatboxing is as remarkable as the man’s ability to play multiple musical instruments, win acting accolades, run his own record label, write one chart-topping hit after another, and release a total of 11 best-selling albums throughout a 12-year-long career. Jay Chou’s last Singapore solo show as part of his 2010 World Tour sold out three nights at the Singapore Stadium within hours of going on sale.


The Initial D star whose penchant for fast cars amassed a strong following from Asian motor-heads.


Jay will be staging the one-off show spectacular post the on-track race action on the Friday evening of the F1 weekend; the set and show will be specifically designed and created for the 50,000 capacity Padang venue at the Singapore Marina Bay Circuit Park.


Singapore GP will be announcing additional artistes in the coming months. For updates on the latest entertainment schedule, visit www.singaporegp.sg
