Mumbai, Aug 25 (UNI) The 'Unforgettable' tour of the Bachchans, Indian cinema's biggest night out, ended the first leg of the successful concert series in London at the O2 Arena, before a capacity crowd of fans and cinema lovers, who cheered every move of the stars on stage night.
The 'Unforgettable' became the first concert to be staged at the iconic O2 Arena.
Wizcraft International Entertainment, the global promoters of the tour, had earlier terminated the agreements with the tour's Dutch promoter Sekier Entertainment Services and German promoters SensAsian Media Ltd, due to the promoters defaulting on the terms of the agreement. Wizcraft in their efforts to implement the highest standards of technical excellence, financial and legal compliance have taken a firm stand with regard to local promoters throughout the tour, thereby ensuring perfect experiences for the audience and the performing artistes.
The concerts, to be staged in Rotterdam on August 29 and in Oberhausen on August 30, were cancelled much to the disappointment of all the stars and the promoters, who were looking forward to performing before their fans in the two cities.
Wizcraft director Sabbas Joseph commented in a release here that the decision to cancel the last two performances was taken after every possible attempt was made to try and find a solution. The local promoters defaulted making it impossible to progress forward.
''We are truly saddened for those fans who purchased tickets in Rotterdam and Oberhausen in anticipation of experiencing this extravaganza. We are certain that we will be touring the European region and we will come back to embrace more cities soon,'' he added.
The tour brought together the greatest icons of Indian Cinema Amitabh Bachchan, his son Abhishek Bachchan, his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan, Preity Zinta and Riteish Deshmukh, in a spectacular production, which fans have been eagerly awaiting. The concert tour had several guest stars: Toronto had the sensational Akshay Kumar, while the American cities featured the dancing diva Madhuri Dixit and the London concert featured the local-favourite Shilpa Shetty.
Shilpa joined the UK leg of the tour and mesmerised the audience with her dazzling moves. She grooved to some of the most current chartbusters including 'Race', 'Beedi', 'Its Rocking' and 'Mauja Hi Mauja', and London couldn't get enough of their favourite star.
The tour would continue its journey across India, West Asia, Australia, Africa and other Asia-Pacific countries. So far, all cities have witnessed full capacity crowds and it is the biggest reward to the high-profile performers and the spectacular production that has been painstakingly put together.
