For all you fans who loved grooving to the global chartbuster sexy b*** featuring Akon, there’s reason to rejoice. David Guetta, the Grammy winning composer and producer of the number, and several other hits, is set to perform in Delhi in March.
Guetta, the 44-year-old world renowned French DJ, also known for producing hits such as The World Is Mine and I Gotta Feeling, will be performing at the Eristoff invasion, an annual music festival and will tour Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru from March 9-11. “People have been trying to get Guetta here for a while. He has a huge fan following in India and when we spoke to him, he too seemed very keen to come to India,” says Vijay Nair, CEO of Only Much Louder, organisers of the festival.
Sources say that Guetta will be performing in Gurgaon for the Delhi leg of his tour. “In light of some failed concerts in Delhi in the past, the management has ensured that everything goes smooth and hence high security measures are already being planned,” the source adds.
No Bollywood collaborations have so far been planned for the big ticket event. “Though there will be some opening acts, we will not add the Bollywood angle to it, as Guetta has a tremendous following of his own,” says Nair.
The concert will have Guetta’s trademark antics, complete with robots. Each performance will be for 75-90 minutes. Sources reveal that the DJ’s itinerary and stay is currently being planned. He will come to India with a 14 member team.
