Korean pop star Rain has filmed a segment for the F1 Rocks show, the only officially F1 endorsed concert during the Grand Prix week in Singapore.
The three-day music festival, which began at Fort Canning, Thursday, will be recorded and repackaged as two music and entertainment shows that will air to 600 million viewers in about 200 countries, Rain’s agency J. Tune Entertainment said in a statement.
The concert is bringing some of the biggest names in music to the island city state, with the concert being broadcast on the eve of the “2009 Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix” that starts Sunday.
Rain filmed the clip in the Chinese and Japanese Garden, one of the most popular tour sites in Singapore, along with Mark Webber, the 2008 German Grand Pix winner. They performed as racers fighting for an F1 championship.
Rain’s filming is also designed to promote his upcoming movie “Ninja Assassin,” which will hit theaters around the world Nov. 26.
Among other stars participating in the concert are Beyonce, the Black Eyed Peas, DJ Havana Brown and Jacky Cheung.
Rain returned home Thursday to prepare for his concert scheduled for Oct. 9-10 in Seoul, the first leg of his 2009 Asian Tour. (Korea Times)
