Big Acts At Grand Prix

Asia’s only Formula One street race, the Singapore Grand Prix, will take place in the city-state Sept. 23-25.

Organizers recently announced the accompanying entertainment for the event, which will comprise 103 stages and “roving performances” within the circuit park.

All will be available without extra charge to anyone who buys a ticket to the race. Among the international stars slated to perform are Linkin Park, Shakira, Boy George, Shaggy, Charice and Rick Astley.

As of last weekend, about 80 percent of the tickets had been sold, according to the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

Tickets are priced from S$118 (US$98) for single day admission to S$1,288 (US$1,072) for a three-day pass to the main grandstand.
