Sepang International Circuit (SIC) today added to the Formula 1 K-Pop extravaganza when they announced that popular South Korean male pop group SHINee will be joining Girls’ Generation as joint headline acts at the post-race concert for the 2015 Formula 1 PETRONAS Malaysia Grand Prix on 29th March 2015.
Gates will open at 5pm after the F1 race, to allow all ticket holders to head to the Helipad at the Sepang Circuit, where the concert will be held.
In a specially customised performance, the K-Pop idol groups will perform in rotation for 2 hours, from 6pm to 8pm accompanied by Korean DJ Hitchhiker which will elevate the performance, after which the concert will end by 8:30pm. SHINee and Girls’ Generation will be joined by popular local artistes as the opening act.

Upon the announcement, Sepang International Circuit CEO Dato’ Razlan Razali said:
We are excited to offer this Kpop extravaganza this year, knowing that there is a significant fan base among Malaysians from all walks of life. This is also in line with our F1 theme “Experience F1 Like Never Before” and our family-oriented focus this year. Kpop appeals to young and old alike, and will also attract a new audience to come to the Sepang International Circuit to experience the adrenaline-laden atmosphere of Race Day. The rotating performance by the two groups is indeed something new we are offering, and we hope it will make this day even more memorable for all spectators.
SHINee, a 5-member group formed by SM Entertainment in 2008, is considered one of the best live performance acts in South Korea with good vocal performances and complex choreography. The members – Onew, Jonghyun, Key, Minho, and Taemin – have won several awards together, including emerging #1 in the Mnet M Countdown in 2013 and #1 in the KBS Music Bank Chart in ​2013.
While they are known for their fashion sense trailblazing the “SHINee Trend”, the members have also made news for more serious activities, such as taking part in the Help African Children project co-organised by the Korean Red Cross Society and the Korean UNICEF committee, and becoming honorary ambassadors for Seoul’s Gangnam district to promote tourism.
