As if Jay Chou, Katy Perry and Maroon 5 are not enough, organisers have now added talented singer-songwriter Noel Gallagher to the roll of A-listers who will strut their considerable star power at the SingTel Singapore Grand Prix in September.

Best known from his time with English rock band Oasis, Gallagher, who went solo in 2009, will perform songs from his latest self-titled album "Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds". The album has sold more than one million copies worldwide since it was launched last year and is widely regarded as one of his best works in the last 15 years.

Of course, Gallagher will also turn back the clock and serenade fans with some of his best-loved hits including "The Importance Of Being Idle" and "Don't Look Back In Anger".

Gallagher will perform at the Padang stage (Zone 4) on 22 September and at the Village Stage at Gate 1 (Zone 1) before the Formula One race on 23 September 2012.

Besides Chou, Perry, Maroon 5 and Gallagher, other artistes performing at the Marina Bay Street Circuit includes Bananarama, Pretenders and The Proclaimers.

Meanwhile, organisers are reporting brisk ticket sales for the fifth Singapore GP, the world's first and only night F1 race.

To date, more than half the available tickets have been snapped up, with the three-day Zone 4 walkabout tickets, turn 1 Grandstand and combination tickets sold out.

Michael Roche, executive director of race promoter Singapore GP, attributed the brisk sales to an unpredictable F1 season so far. "With six different winners from the six races to date, it is anybody's game which will surely make for an exciting spectacle on our circuit come September."
