Swedish House keeps its date with Bangalore

 The Swedish electronic dance music group’s much-awaited concert in the City was delayed by a day.

But that did not deter its diehard fans from turning out in huge numbers. The Swedish House Mafia landed at the Bhartiya City grounds on Monday with a bang.

The trio of Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso then took over the stage, belting out popular numbers one after the other as the excited crowd lapped them up. The highly energised audience was relieved that the group had finally kept its date with Bangalore.

The Bangalore show was part of the trio’s “One Last Tour” around the world. The tour is slated to conclude in March. After that, the trio will disband and go their own musical ways.

The farewell concert here on Monday saw the trio performing to most of their popular songs. Featured were songs from their entire music career since 2007 - “Miami 2 Ibiza,” “Get Dumb,” “Don’t you worry child” and “Greyhound,” among others.

The concert was earlier scheduled to be held on Sunday. It was put off as the aircraft carrying the group from the Indonesian capital Jakarta was reportedly damaged in the storm and floods in Indonesia. The music group was stranded and could not make it to Bangalore on time, according to a note put up on the group’s Facebook page.

An earlier concert in Mumbai on November 17 had to be deferred due to the death of Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray.
