11 March 2015, SEPANG, Malaysia – Sepang International Circuit (SIC) today announced that one of South Korea’s hottest pop groups, Girls’ Generation will be performing at the post-race concert for the 2015 Formula 1 PETRONAS Malaysia Grand Prix™ on 29 March 2015. This follows the announcement by American rocker Lenny Kravitz who recently cancelled his tour in Asia, including the scheduled performance in Sepang. The concert, to be held at the Helipad in the Sepang Circuit has also been brought forward to an earlier time slot. Gates will now open at 4.30pm, with the main act set to perform at 5.30pm and concert ending at 8.00pm.
“We are very pleased to secure an act like Girls’ Generation for the concert, following our recent disappointment. Indeed, we are still working on securing another world-class performer for the concert, but we just had to share the good news on Girls’ Generation as soon as possible. Having this hugely popular group performing right here in Sepang makes the post-race concert a very special occasion, so we hope their fans will take the opportunity to see them, from only RM80 onwards, besides also watching the Malaysian F1 Grand Prix. With their large fan base here in Malaysia and wide appeal – from youths to families of all ages, it is good for us to create opportunities to introduce the experience of watching the F1 race live to these fans that may not have been to a race weekend at Sepang.,”said Dato’ Razlan Razali, CEO of Sepang International Circuit.
“On behalf of the SIC team, I thank the relevant authorities including the Central Agency for Foreign Artists’ Filming and Performance Application (PUSPAL) for their support in accepting and processing all the required documentation and paperwork for the replacement artistes. We have worked hard to secure the artistes but it is the support from these authorities that will make the post-race concert possible,” added Dato’ Razlan.
Girls’ Generation is an 8-member girl group created by SM Entertainment, a prominent South Korean entertainment company. This popular group debuted in 2007 and became one of South Korea’s most popular musical acts after the success of their 2009 song, “Gee”. Their popularity transcends borders – proven by their large international fan base comprising men and women from various cultures.
