India will debut on the Formula One racing calendar with the first race held from Oct. 28-30 near Delhi preceded by a F1 Rocks concert by Metallica.
NEW DELHI – Lady Gaga will perform at the after-party of the inaugural Formula One race in India set for Oct. 28-30 at the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida, near Delhi.
Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal confirmed that Lady Gaga will perform at a special lounge hosted by the Lap Club, which he co-owns.
As reported earlier, Lady Gaga confirmed her plans of visiting India in Oct. on a promotional tour during her first Indian TV chat show interview. Gaga appeared on India's Most Desirable, hosted by former actress Simi Garewal that airs on News Corp.'s Star network channel Star One.
“It's a great feeling to get an icon like her to perform at your club, at your lounge. She is very excited to come to India and to perform here,” Rampal told reporters Thursday adding that his Lap club – an exclusive nightspot located in a five star hotel in New Delhi - will host a special lounge at the Jaypee Greens Golf and Spa Resort which is about a half hour drive away from the 120,000-capacity racing circuit.
The multi-award winning artist will perform on the concluding day of the race on 30 October while previous after-parties will feature international DJs Roger Sanchez on day one followed by Edward Maya and Tom Navy on day three.
Meanwhile, two days before the race, Metallica will headline F1 Rocks, the series of live and televised concerts staged alongside the Formula One Grand Prix races. The metal giants will perform in India for the first time in front of 30,000 fans at the open-air Leisure Valley venue, which is about a two-hour drive from the race track.
Considered the world's biggest and fastest single-seater motor-racing tournament, and one of the most glamorous sports events, the annual F1 Grand Prix is being held in 19 countries this year and will be watched by an estimated 600 million unique TV viewers globally.
