GN'R to rock F1 post-race concert - Malaysian GP - March 24th 2013


Recommended Posts


IF there is one party to set your pulse racing, it is the Malaysian F1 Grand Prix 2013 post-race concert on March 24 in Sepang, Kuala Lumpur featuring legendary rock band Guns 'n' Roses.


Formed in Los Angeles in 1985, Guns 'n' Roses will topline the post-race party and make it a rocking 15th anniversary celebration for the Malaysian F1 Grand Prix.

It is also Guns 'n' Roses' first concert in Malaysia.

The Grammy award-winning Guns 'n' Roses, which has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, is best known for rock classics like 'Welcome To The Jungle', 'Sweet Child O' Mine', 'Paradise City', 'Patience', 'Don't Cry', 'Estranged' and 'November Rain'.

The band, now led by frontman Axl Rose, 50, has kept its major hits on the current tour playlist as well as newer songs such as 'Chinese Democracy', 'Better and 'This I Love.'

As the sole original member left in the band, Axl Rose is backed up by guitarists Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal, DJ Ashba and Richard Fortus, bassist and backing vocalist Tommy Stinson, drummer Frank Ferrer and keyboardists and backing vocalists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman.

Guns 'n' Roses was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last April.

The band has included the Malaysian stop on March 24 as regional concert exclusive after its Australian tour in March. More details soon at (sepangcircuit.com).

It’s better late than never. Legendary 90s rock band Guns N’ Roses are set to rev up the Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix at the Sepang International Circuit (SIC) on March 24.


Well loved for classic hits like Sweet Child O’ Mine, November Rain and Welcome to the Jungle, the American rock band is still fronted by the charistmatic Axl Rose.

Sadly, the reconstituted version of Guns N’ Roses does not include former members Slash, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan or Steven Adler. (this is very sad indeed)

The big boys of hard rock parted ways 20 years ago due to bitter feuding – which saw Rose refusing to join his former bandmates when Guns N’ Roses were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April last year.

“So let sleeping dogs lie or lying dogs sleep or whatever. Time to move on. People get divorced. Life doesn’t owe you your own personal happy ending especially at another’s, or in this case several others’, expense,” the wild child of Guns N’ Roses has infamously told the Associated Press.

Over at the Petronas Twin Towers, Disney pop star Demi Lovato and K-pop biggie U-Kiss are set to keep the pre-race crowd happy with their sunny pop and nifty dance moves, under the Twin Towers @Live concert series on March 22 and 23, organised by Jojo Events.

Already in its 15th year, the Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix is rewarding its loyal supporters with a One Ticket Unlimited (ITU) package this year.

“ITU is also a passport for additional privileges including premium packages for transportation with ERL or Skybus, F&B voucher, exclusive 15th years anniversary merchandise and additional discounts during the month-long 1Malaysia GP Sale 2013 for certain category of tickets,” said SIC chairman Datuk Mokhzani Mahathir at the official launch of the premier motor racing event in Esplanade KLCC on Tuesday night.

With ITU, all grandstand ticket holders get to watch Guns N’ Roses post-race concert for free. Hillstand ticket holders will have to add minimum RM120 to catch the must-watch rock act.

The Sepang F1 is on from March 22 – 24.

Walk-in counters have also been set up in KL Sentral and KLCC till 24th March. Maybank Visa and Mastercard Debit or Credit card holders get 25% off.

Students can purchase the wallet-friendly ‘Buy 1 free 1 promotion’ with Kad Diskaun Siswa 1Malaysia (KADS1M) for the Main Grandstand ticket of Topaz, Citrine, Tower North & Tower South from now until March 17th.
