Singapore Grand Prix Reveals Lineup For F1 2017 Concert

By  April 26, 2017

Singapore GP has revealed the headliners that will be gracing our shores this September for the 2017 F1 race. If you haven't seen it already, check out the lineup here:

 

Alas, the tribe has spoken: Singapore is not impressed.

Having seen the likes of Bon Jovi and Mariah Carey in the past years, the 2017 lineup might just be the least exciting. As someone who have always been pleasantly surprised by the lineups each year, I can't help but feel a tinge of disappointment. It also doesn't help that this could be the last race in the country. Unless a new wave of headliners are to be announced in the coming days, it seems like the F1 race would leave Singapore for the last time with only a fizzle. 

After doing some analysis, I have boiled down the underwhelming 2017 lineup to the lack of these 3 acts (that I would like to strongly urge Singapore GP to consider adding).

 

1) An Asian Headliner

As pointed out in Facebook comments, it has been 3 years since the F1 race saw their last asian headliner. 

 

 

Who would be perfect: X Japan

 

2) A World-Class Act

The Chainsmokers and Ariana Grande may be some of the recognisable names of today, but... they ain't no Queen. 

Who would be perfect: U2

 

3) A Veteran Performer For The Non-Teenagers

One of the biggest complaints about the lineup is that it appeals mostly to teens. While one could argue that there's still Duran Duran and Seal for the more seasoned crowd, what about those who fall in between?

Who would be perfect: Foo Fighters
