The Closing Concert
For the first time at the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix, The Closing Concert will be staged on September 23 to conclude the festivities on a high note. What better way to do it than to have worldwide phenomenon Justin Bieber take over Singapore's biggest outdoor stage at The Padang? With millions of album sales, sell-out concerts across the globe and 37 million followers on Twitter, Justin Bieber was named by Forbes magazine as the third-most powerful celebrity in the world in 2012. The YouTube phenomenon and winner of the Artist of The Year award at the American Music Awards last year was also the first solo artist to have four singles enter the Top 40 chart before the release of his debut album. In 2009, Justin Bieber's first single "One Time" was certified platinum in Canada shortly after its release, and his album My World proved to be just as successful. The young lad tapped on his immense popularity with a succession of chart-topping albums, making history as the first artist to have five number one albums before the age of 19. Beliebers can look forward to a night of exhilarating fun and excitement as their favourite idol and his special guests rock the stage with some of his biggest hits such as â€œBabyâ€, â€œSomebody to Loveâ€, â€œBoyfriendâ€ and â€œRight Hereâ€. Entry to The Closing Concert on Sep 23 (Mon), is separately ticketed and tickets will be available for sales starting from Jun 6 via www.singaporegp.sg, ticketing hotline +65 6738 6738 and all SISTIC outlets in Singapore.
