THE prestigious Malaysian Grand Prix Dinner is back this year to kickstart the Formula One weekend.

The black-tie event will be held at a specially constructed three-tiered grand marquee at Plaza Petronas KLCC on March 27.

The venue will also play host to the Twin Towers @live 2014 concert on March 28 and 29.

So far, K-Pop singer Rain and British performer Craig David are confirmed for the concert.

The by-invitation Malaysian Grand Prix Dinner event is traditionally attended by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, the Raja Permaisuri Agong and the Prime Minister as well as Malaysian and international celebrities.

The evening will start off with a cocktail reception where guests will have the opportunity to mingle with F1 drivers.

Past years’ performers included Lionel Richie, JT Taylor from Kool & The Gang as well as Datuk Siti Nurhaliza.

The gala event is a tradition since the race was first held here in 1999.
