Robbie Williams headlines F1 Singapore concert

Robbie Williams is set to entertain at the 2014 F1 Singapore Grand Prix

Armed with a cheeky grin and dapper suit, the former bad boy of pop music Robbie Williams is set to thrill crowds come 20 September.

He is the headline act performing at the F1 Singapore Grand Prix, at the Padang stage on a Saturday.

This will be Williams' first time playing in Singapore in 11 years. He was last here for the MTV Asia Awards in 2003.

Starting off as a member of British boyband Take That in the 1990s, Williams went on to carve a hugely successful solo music career after he left the band. Known for his bravado and inimitable stage presence, he was responsible for monster hits such as ‘Angel’ and ‘Millennium’, and bestselling albums such as ‘Sing When You’re Winning’ and ‘Escapology’.

Now the 40-year-old dad is likelier to delve into the classic American songbook for tracks such as ‘Dream a Little Dream’ and ‘Puttin on the Ritz’ for his repertoire of songs. There is even a swing version of ‘Supreme’ off his latest album, ‘Swings both ways’, which is a tribute to old-time razzmatazz, complete with horns and strings.

Williams joins the list of other big names slated to perform over the F1 weekend from 19 to 21 September this year, including John Legend, The Pet Shop Boys, Ziggy Marley and May Day.

The headlining act at the Padang stage for Sunday 21 September is yet to be announced.

Entry to the Robbie Williams concert at the Padang stage as well as all other entertainment in Zone 4 of the race circuit is included with any three-day ticket, or with the Saturday Zone 4 Walkabout Ticket.

Tickets are available via www.singaporegp.sg, the ticketing hotline +65 6738 6738, as well as authorised agents.
