MUMBAI - As Bryan Adams begins his five-city India tour Friday, tickets for his concerts are fast disappearing, with Delhi topping the sales. But the Canadian rocker has a lot more planned on his trip.
According to a source from the organising team, an audience of over 20,000 people is expected at each of his concerts. The tickets are priced at Rs.10,000 for seats in the VVIP Lounge, Rs.4,000 for the Gold Ticket and Rs.2,000 for the Silver Ticket.
“Since last week, 15,000 tickets have been sold in each centre. Delhi tops the list in ticket sales so far,” said the source, without giving any specific figures.
The star, known for hits like “Summer of 69″, “Everything I do”, “Have you ever really loved a woman”, “Cloud No.9″, “Here I am”, arrives in Mumbai Friday.
He will be performing at the Micromax Bryan Adams Live in Concert India Tour to be held in Pune, Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi and Hyderabad Feb 11-16.
In Mumbai, Bryan Adams will perform at the MMRDA Grounds, Bandra Kurla Complex and ace Bollywood choreographer Shiamak Davar and hip hop singer Hard Kaur will do an audience warm-up before the singer takes to the stage.
Actress Priyanka Chopra too might perform a little act at the Mumbai concert to promote her upcoming film “7 Khoon Maaf”. However, her performance is yet to be confirmed.
The guest list for the Mumbai concert is star studded with names like Rani Mukerji, Vidya Balan, Akshay Kumar, Twinkle Khanna, as well as businessmen like Mukesh Ambani, among others on it. Actor Sanjay Dutt was invited as well, but he regrets he won’t be able to make it as he will be busy shooting.
In Pune, it will be held at Amanora Township at Magarpatta; NSIC Grounds in Delhi; Palace Grounds in Bangalore and at HITEX Exhibition Center in Hyderabad.
Adams is performing in India after 10 years and fans are eagerly waiting for his concert.
“I am a big fan of Bryan Adams. I am trying hard to buy or manage a ticket. I am so excited to see his performance. ‘Summer of 69 and ‘18 till I die’ are my all time favourite songs of his. I hope he performs these two songs,” Debasmita Ghosh, an MBA student, told IANS.
Som Sinha, an investment banker, said: “I can’t miss Bryan Adams. I had watched his show when he came last time also.”
Adams has a jampacked to-do-list during his India tour.
He will be involved with choreographer Remo D’souza’s directorial venture “F.A.L.T.U” to launch a special portal, which will make it easier to download songs. This event will take place in New Delhi and Hyderabad.
In Delhi, the 51-year-old would announce his support to 15-20 centres of NGO IMPACT that looks into education of children between eight to 16 years of age.
