Jagjit Singh's ghazal concert will be held at the Sher-e-Kashmir convention complex here.
Speaking to media persons on his arrival, he said: "I have a huge number of lovers in Kashmir who understand the intricacies of Urdu ghazal as they are well-versed with the language but there are only 700 seats in the auditorium where I would be singing."
"I hope to come here again next summer so that I can hold an open air concert to accommodate thousands of Urdu ghazal lovers here," he said.
The country's most famous living Urdu ghazal singer recalled that he had come here last time two decades back, but was happy at being able to perform here again.
Kashmir has a large number of Urdu knowing people who love its literature and poetry.
