Lady Gaga will perform at the closing ceremony of India’s first Formula 1 Airtel Indian Grand Prix, which is taking place in Noida, India, on 30 October. The closing ceremony is being held at LAP Buddh Circuit restaurant-bar, which is co-owned by actor and model Arjun Rampal.

“It’s a very big thing that Lady Gaga has agreed to perform in India”, Rampal said. “She’s at the peak of her career and I am thrilled to announce that she will come to India for the first time”.

A lot of live music events will happen at the Grand Prix. Award-winning American heavy metal band Metallica will perform on October 28 in Leisure Valley, Gurgaon.

“At this stage in the game, there are very few places in the world that we have not dragged our gear and crew to, so that makes this show announcement extra special”, said the band in a press statement. “For the first time ever, we will be visiting India and it’s about time, wouldn’t you say?”

Well, looks like Delhi-area residents are going to be enjoying a series of exciting concerts!
