AR Rahman and Akon to perform in Dhaka

Oscar winning Indian composer and singer AR Rahman and Senegalese American R&B and hip hop icon Akon are set to enchant the audience of Dhaka on March 13 at the Bangabandhu National Stadium.


They will perform at the concert organised by Bangladesh Cricket Board for the upcoming T-20 world cup, confirmed an official of BCB.

This will be the first ever tour to Bangladesh for both the artistes.

The source said there were many speculations about the concert but yesterday the two internationally acclaimed artistes and two local bands—LRB and Miles—have confirmed to perform in the concert. Some more local bands and celebrated soloists like Kumar Biswajit, Sabina Yasmin and Runa Laila are also in talks for the mega concert.

However, the tickets of the show will be distributed only after confirmation of all the artistes and the distribution process has not been disclosed yet.
