KS Chitra dedicates concert in Dubai to late singer SP Balasubrahmanyam
KS Chitra dedicated their upcoming concert in Dubai to the late singer and mentor SP Balasubrahmanyam (SPB).
The singer, who will take the stage on December 24 for the “Musically Yours” concert, had previously performed with SPB in Dubai in November 2015.
â€œIn November 2015, I performed in Dubai as part of Oberoi Events’ production, ‘Legends in Concert’ with my mentor, the late Shri SP Balasubrahmanyam, who gave us so much immortal music. In ‘Musically Yours’ I will be paying a special and humble tribute to SPB sir as well as to my music gurus who have inspired me over the years, â€Chitra said in a statement ahead of his concert.
Organized by Oberoi Middle East Events, the concert will also see Chitra pay homage to Indian song legends, including Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle and KJ Yesudas, among others.
“Intense rehearsals have been underway for the past few days in Trivandrum with over 20 world-class musicians and co-singers,” Oberoi said in a statement. “With a repertoire of over 25,000 songs in various languages, music lovers can expect an epic selection of the true gems of Chitrji’s hits, as well as his personal and special tribute to the legends who inspire him.”
Organizers also said the concert has only a limited number of tickets available and they are heading to a sold-out concert.
The concert will take place at the Trade Center Arena, Dubai World Trade Center on Friday, December 24. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the concert begins at 9 p.m. Limited tickets are available on Platinumlist.net.
