The Weeknd added to F1 entertainment roster

The Weeknd has been nominated for Record of the Year ("Can't Feel My Face") and Album of the Year ("Beauty Behind the Madness").

AUSTIN (KXAN) — As if having Taylor Swift performing at the Formula 1 United State Grand Prix wasn’t enough, Circuit of The Americas (COTA) announced Thursday that two-time GRAMMY winner The Weeknd will close out the last night of F1. Taylor Swift will perform on Saturday, Oct. 22.

Sunday-only race tickets are now also available for $99. With that ticket you can experience race day as well as The Weeknd’s closing show. Three-day passes for the 2016 F1 USGP—which include access to the Taylor Swift concert on Saturday and The Weeknd concert on Sunday—start at $150. Three-day passes will be increasing to $165 on Sept. 1.

Last year, Elton John closed out the U.S. Grand Prix after a rainy weekend.
