SEPANG, 30 September 2016 – Fans of Formula 1 and multi-Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Usher alike who are eagerly awaiting the weekend will be glad to know that the Official Public Transport Provider Rapid KL has made comprehensive transport options available for their convenience. Sepang International Circuit (SIC) hosts the 2016 FORMULA 1 PETRONAS MALAYSIA GRAND PRIX on 30 September to 2 October 2016. Usher will be performing at the After-Race Concert at the 18th F1 Malaysia Grand Prix supported by an exciting line-up of Universal Music artistes including Natasha Sass, Fazura, Modescape and Backtobasixx.
“We are expecting thousands upon thousands of fans to descend upon Sepang this weekend, so we encourage everyone to consider taking public transportation. You’ll save yourself the hassle of driving through potential traffic jams and searching for a parking spot. We are pleased to appoint Rapid KL as the Official Public Transport Provider for the F1 Malaysia Grand Prix for the third year running. Rapid KL has worked closely with us and set up a dedicated shuttle bus service for fans, running from the KL City Centre to the circuit, so we hope fans will choose this service,” said SIC Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Razlan Razali.
Usher, who has sold over 65 million albums worldwide, has been named one of the best-selling artistes in American music history by the Recording Industry Association of America. Billboard has also named him the second most successful artiste of the 2000s decade, with his career-propelling 2004 album ‘Confessions’ ranked as the top solo album of that decade. The multi-talented artiste has achieved nine Billboard Hot 100 #1 hits and 18 Hot 100 Top 10 singles such as ‘You Got It Bad’ and ‘OMG’. This year, his collaboration with Malaysia’s very own singer-songwriter Yuna produced the hit track ‘Crush’, which peaked at 39th on the Billboard Top 100 chart.
