Get Ready (yes, with a capital R) because this Sunday, April 22nd the roof at the world famous O2 in London will be blown off by the hot beats, the cool grooves, the best songs, the fabulous tones and incredible vocals of both Atif Aslam and Sonu Niigaam. We are talking about Dhamaka 2012! Earlier this week there were some reports that Sonu Niigaam would not be part of the concert but we can now confirm he most definitely will! In fact he tweeted himself, “London O2 happening.. Get ready guys.”
According to the organizers apparently there was a “misunderstanding on Twitter that is now cleared up. Dhamaka is most definitely on, on 22nd April and is shaping up beautifully.”
Talking about the two star attractions of the night Naz Choudhury told us,
“I am expecting Atif Aslam to give the performance of his life at Dhamaka 2012, because he is a gifted rock-star, and will perform alongside a musical legend. I’m expecting him to get the audience on their feet and shake the O2.”
“Sonu Niigaam he needs no introduction, the word legend is the only one that comes to mind. Expect him to be very entertaining and he will perform all his major hits, that will take you through his years of consistent Bollywood hits. His presence, his versatility and variety is beyond imagination.”
Atif Aslam is excited about the upcoming concert, “I’m very excited to return to Dhamaka at the O2 this April, It was my dream to perform in Royal Albert Hall and Flex FX made that happen for me in 2007 and now being the first Pakistani singer to play the world’s greatest venue ‘The O2’, I’m truly honoured. It is historic for me, as I am performing on the same billing as the esteemed singer, Sonu Nigam for the first time. Our countries are coming together with this show and I look forward to giving the UK fans a Dhamakadar performance.”
About performing on the O2 stage Sonu told us earlier, “ I’m thrilled to be a part of the Dhamaka event, with Flex FX, and moreover, to be on the world’s most famous stage. The O2 has hosted all the greatest musicians, performers and entertainers and I want my performance to be remembered. This show is going be a visual spectacular as well as a musical extravaganza, alongside amazing dancers from the UK, and my full live band. It is also the first time that I will be sharing concert with Atif Aslam, who is a renowned singer from Pakistan. The meeting of our countries, in Royal Greenwich, London, is a rare gem and I can’t wait to perform to all my UK supporters, critics and beloved fans.”
So get ready for the explosion of music by Atif and Sonu plus the fab dance group BollyFlex when Dhamaka hits the O2! We will be there and will bring you a full report!
