This year’s Formula 1 Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix is going to be nothing but awesome as multi-Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Usher will be performing at the 18th edition of the F1 after-race concert!

“This year, we are pleased to bring fans a magnetic performance by one of the best-selling artistes in American music history,” said Sepang International Circuit (SIC) Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Razlan Razali in a statement.

“In 2010, 10,000 Usher fans in Malaysia had the opportunity to catch their favourite star in concert, so don’t miss your chance this year,” he added.

Taking place from 30 September to 2 October 2016, the R&B prince is one of the biggest stars that SIC has brought in for the F1 after-race concert!


Stars which have previously graced the stage after the F1 Grand Prix in Sepang over the years include K-pop artistes Girls’ Generation and SHINee, DJ Calvin Harris, and iconic rock band Guns N’ Roses.

Usher was named one of the best-selling artistes in American music history by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), having sold more than 65 million albums worldwide.

He had also recently collaborated with Malaysian song bird Yuna for the hit track ‘Crush’, which peaked at 39th on the Billboard Top 100 chart.

Furthermore, fans of the handsome crooner can take advantage of a brand new feature at this year’s race as SIC introduces the Star Stand, a special seating zone located at the B Hillstand area that allows ticket holders priority viewing of the concert and a great view of the circuit during the race.


The Star Stand ticket cost RM183.38 for adults or half priced for kids which is at RM93.28. For RM225.78, the ticket will come with exclusive merchandise.
