The 27-time Grammy Award nominee and celebrated singer, songwriter, producer, and musician has sold more than 180 million singles worldwide. Recently, his critically acclaimed and RIAA certified double-platinum album “24K Magic” marked his highest first-week sales debut. It remained in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 for an impressive 44 consecutive weeks. The lead hit single “24K Magic” is certified four times Platinum by the RIAA.

International pop icon, Britney Spears will close out the weekend’s celebration with a post-race concert on Sunday, October 21

Her “Britney: Piece of Me” upcoming world tour is kicking off this summer. The multi-platinum Grammy Award-winning singer is one of the most successful and celebrated entertainers in pop history with nearly 150 million records sold worldwide. Spears became a household name as a teenager when she released her first single “…Baby One More Time,” a Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 smash and international hit that broke sales records with more than 20 million copies sold worldwide and is currently 14x Platinum in the U.S. Her musical career boasts countless awards and accolades, including six Billboard Music Awards and Billboard’s Millennium Award, which recognizes outstanding career achievements and influence in the music industry.

“We’re excited to welcome Bruno Mars and Britney Spears to this year’s United States Grand Prix stage. The pinnacle of motorsports, two global superstar musicians and all of the festive entertainment that comes with the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix defines the weekend as the greatest sports and entertainment celebration of the year. We are proud to host such an incredible weekend for race and music fans alike”, said Founder and Chairman of COTA Bobby Epstein.
