'Air Supply' to rock Shillong
Shillong, Apr 25 (UNI) Music lovers in this picturesque city will rock to the beats of equipment weighting more than 20 tonnes when international band 'Air Supply' performs here on May 14 as part of its India tour.
The rock band will perform at the Jawharlal Nehru Stadium here after their performances in New Delhi on May 11 and in Bangalore on May 12.
''The band will offer a high-voltage performance to a crowd of about 25,000 to 30,000 people here,'' said Mr Deepak Shah, Chief Operations Officer of Mumbai-based organiser of the event Planman Consulting.
''When we offered Shillong as a venue, the 'Air Supply' duo wanted to know about the place. When we told them about the amazing experience that 'Michael Learns to Rock' (MLTR) got here last year, they were more than happy to come here,'' he told reporters here today.
The performance is expected to draw audience in large numbers from all the states in the region.
''This band has a bigger fan following than even MLTR and 'Firehouse', who performed here earlier. We are expecting people from all the states in the region at the show. Therefore, we are going to sell tickets from Monday onwards in all the major towns in the region,'' said Atikur Rahman, Managing Director of joint organisers Speedstakes, Shillong Chapter.
The capital of Meghalaya, known for its passion for Western music, has emerged as a 'hot' destination for international music bands with recent performances by 'Petra', 'Fire House' and MLTR.
''We are finally going to tour India. All that wonderful food and fantastic people, I cannot wait,'' said English vocalist and guitarist of the band Graham Russel on their official website.
