Travis added to Singapore GP line-up

Travis will join the list of entertainers for the Singapore F1 Grand Prix in September, it has been announced.

The alternative rock band will appear alongside the likes of Chaka Khan, Ozomatli, the Backstreet Boys and Youssou N'Dour, as well as the large-scale theatre acts and top DJs aimed at further enhancing the overall spectator experience at what is the 14th round in this year's F1 World Championship.

Hailing from Glasgow, Travis consists of Fran Healy (lead vocals), Dougie Payne (bass guitar), Andy Dunlop (lead guitar) and Neil Primrose (drums).

The band have been awarded Best British album and Best British Group at the annual BRIT Awards, and have also been credited for paving the way for bands such as Coldplay, Keane and Snow Patrol. Travis will be performing their hits which include “Closer”, “Sing”, “Why Does It Always Rain on Me” and songs from their latest album, Ode to J. Smith.

Meanwhile spectators will also be treated to what is being called 'the must-go party' for race ticketholders.

After a successful party last year at the Padang, Zouk returns this time to the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre to present top DJs Carl Cox, the godfather of UK techno, and progressive tech-house' stalwart John Digweed.

There will also be additional roving artistes to tease the spectators, including Melbourne-based Strange Fruit and Cie des Quidams' Herbert's Dream, which has bewitched audiences from Bangkok to Bruxelles since 1997.

All of the artistes will be performing at various stages around the Circuit Park. Travis is slated to perform at Zone 4 at the Padang, while the Backstreet Boys will play a short acoustic set on Saturday September 26 in Zone 1 and a full length set on Sunday September 27 at the Padang stage after the race.

The full schedule of performances and artistes, which is subject to change, will be available on the events official website.

Wow, some seriously z-list entertainment there. Disappointing as when I saw the headline I assumed it was Travis Pastrana (at least he might add some entertainment to the day), not some washed up band no-ones heard anything from for years, joined by some other washed up bands and singers!
