This year’s Formula 1 event is going to be awesome as South Korean idol group Girls’ Generation will be showing some flower power at the post-race concert for the 2015 Formula 1 PETRONAS Malaysia Grand Prix this 29 March 2015!
The girls will be replacing American rocker Lenny Kravitz after he abruptly cancelled his Asian tour last week which includes his F1 performance in Sepang.
Moreover, the Girls’ Generation performance which will be held at the Helipad, Sepang Circuit has been brought forward to an earlier time slot. Gates will now open at 4.30pm with the main act kicking off things at 5.30pm so that the concert can end at 8.00pm.

Dato’ Razlan Razali, CEO of Sepang International Circuit said in a statement;
“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.”

“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.
