Seats added to AR Rahman's sold out Singapore concert

"Due to the exceptional demand for tickets to the show, BASE Entertainment has just released an additional block of SGD 145 tickets for sale to the public," said Marina Bay Sands in a statement today.

The 'AR Rahman Jai Ho Concert: The Journey Home' world tour promises to be a whole new experience and the man himself will vouch for this, the statement added.
"My team and I have come up with a new set of songs for Singapore and this is quite a unique combination of artists and I don't think you'll get to see them again. I am especially excited to perform Robotic from Robo and Endhiran," said Rahman.

When asked about Singapore, the Oscar-winning composer said, "Singapore is my first love. It was the first country I travelled to out of India in 1986, and it was such a radiant city even back then. Now as I take a look around, I am amazed at how it has flourished to become the premier destination for Indian travellers. It is great to be back."

The concert at Marina Bay Sands will be a four-night extravaganza as part of the Singapore leg of his global tour. Rahman has teamed up with creative director Amy Tinkham, best known for stage collaborations with Britney Spears, the Backstreet Boys and Mariah Carey.

Rahman's 'Jai Ho' concert tour kicked off on June 11, 2010 in New York and has since toured cities around the globe including Washington, Texas, Toronto, Johannesburg, Cape Town, London, Zurich and Paris.
