KUALA LUMPUR – Iconic rock musician Lenny Kravitz is set to rock the after-race concert at the 2015 Formula 1 Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix (F1) on March 29.
Sepang International Circuit (SIC) chief executive officer Datuk Razlan Razali said the concert would take place from 6.30 to 11.30pm at the Helipad in SIC, after the finale of the race on Sunday.
Razlan noted that the F1 after-race concert had seen tremendous excitement and interest in recent years.
“This year, for the first time ever, we wanted to make things even more thrilling and also thank all F1 ticket holders for their continuous support by opening the after-race concert to all spectators at no extra charge.
“In the past, only Grandstand ticket holders could see the concert for free while others had to pay an additional top-up fee. Now, you can see stars of the track and stage in action in the same day, for as low as only RM80,” he said in a statement today.
The after-race concert will also feature local stars in addition to Kravitz’s 70-minute main performance.
Lenny Kravitz, has transcended genre, style, race and class into a 20-year musical career, one which revels in the rich influences of ’60s and ’70s soul, rock and funk.
Kravitzâ€™s talents as a writer, producer and multi-instrumentalist have resonated now through ten studio albums into a timeless catalog, which has sold over 38 million albums worldwide.
He has won four consecutive GRAMMY Awards, setting a record for the most wins in the â€œBest Male Rock Vocal Performanceâ€ category. Kravitz’s latest albums include the 20th anniversary deluxe edition of his debut, Let Love Rule, and his critically acclaimed latest studio release Strut, which Rolling Stone Magazine named one of the top albums of 2014. – BERNAMA
