Sonu Nigam Concert; He came, He saw, He conquered

What a dazzling display of a talent par
excellence it was, in an equally put up
spectacular show that came to shores of
Auckland once again. A crowd of more than
two thousand music lovers, enjoyed every
moment of the presence of the living legend
and his electrifying performance on stage
at Logan Campbell Centre. Sonu Nigam,
gave yet another outstanding performance
in front of a packed house on Saturday 6th
July, in a completely sold out show. In his
own words, Sonu admitted that this was
the most divine show of his entire career.
He said he has performed in thousands of
shows, all over the world including in New
Zealand, but this was the best ever show
of his life where throughout the show, the
audience clapped, sang and danced along
with him and enjoyed every moment of the
show. Having performed in thousands of
shows Sonu has mastered the art of touching
nerves of his audience, which he did in this
show as well and he did it very well and won
over his fans and all music lovers with his
soulful melodious voice.
Kudos to the organisers of the show, SS
Telefilms, who deserve a pat on their back
for putting up yet another very successful
show in Auckland. The duo of father Shane
Sohal and his very devoted son Bobby left
no stone unturned to make the concert
a grand success. It was all the toiling and
hard work of these two, of many months
which yielded such a grand feat. They have
been flooded with congratulatory messages
after the concert from well-wishers, friends
and music lovers for the grand success of
the Sonu Nigam Concert. New Zealand’s
own Kishore Kumar and Radio Tarana RJ
Gopal Bhatia was also part of Mr Sohal’s
organising team. Earlier on Friday 5th July,
the entire SS Telefilm team and members
of media including The Indian News team
were at airport to welcome Sonu and his
family where a Haka was organised for their
welcome. Sonu was visibly very moved by
the welcome and told the team that it is first
time he has been welcomed with a Haka
performance and as a thanksgiving gesture
he sang a few lines of his own famous
Bollywood number for the Haka team.
