BEPs, Beyonce, NERD for F1 Rocks

Big hits; fast cars; Jai ho…

Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce and NERD will headline the first ever F1 Rocks event in Singapore in September.

The trio of hit-makers will top the bill at the three-day bash, organised to coincide with the Grand Prix there next month.
 
Less excitingly (unless you’re a fan of beards) - ZZ Top and Simple Minds are also on the bill.
 
F1 Rocks organisers say the event will: "fuse the world's most popular annual sporting series with the most iconic music stars to create an unrivalled experience for F1 and music fans alike".
 
Formula One chief Bernie Ecclestone is pretty excited about it too. "It's exciting,” he said; confirming his aforementioned excitement. “It's something we've been talking about doing for an awful long time."
 
The racing car supremo added that Singapore "couldn't be a better place" to launch the event. "They're well, well ahead of anyone else in the world in my opinion."
 
It is hoped the show will be transmitted in up to 188 countries.
 
F1 Rocks takes place on September 24, 25 and 26.
 
Tickets go on sale tomorrow (August 5).
