Legendary Malaysian rock band Wings will be performing at the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix 2022.

They will take on the Zone 4 Padang stage between free practice sessions on the first night of the race on Sep. 30.

This makes Wings the first Southeast Asian band to perform at the event's 14-year history.

Wings, which was started in 1985, has been a mainstay of the Malaysian rock scene, with multiple record-breaking albums, including their debut album “Belenggu Irama”.

Since then, they have gone on to sell nearly two million records and released 11 more studio albums.
