Music aficionados of the Indian community overseas have reason to sway. Bollywood composer trio Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy will soon be leaving on their first-ever film world tour, joined by Mahalaxmi Iyer and Richa Sharma. Called the Inspiration Rock On Live in Concert, the entourage will be touring UK, USA and Canada for a month, between July 15 and August 15.
Ehsaan Noorani shared, “We will be doing 12 concerts in more than 16 cities globally. We have the most talented artists travelling and performing with us. We have made a commitment, that we will successfully finish all the concerts in a span of one month.”
Excited about their first-ever world tour together, Loy Mendonsa exclaims thrilled: “We have played all across the world with many shows, but have never had a solo show ourselves. This will be the first time that the three of us will be touring together as a part of our own show. Of course we are collaborating with Mahalaxmi and Richa, but besides them there are some artists from across the globe, who will be surprise elements.”
For Mahalaxmi, it will be her first world tour. “The thunderous sound of the audience’s applause to an artist’s performance is the best music to an artist’s ears. I really enjoy performing in front of a live audience,” she says.
