"It was so wonderful to see so many people"
Diljit Dosanjh’s UK tour was announced several months ago but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, precise details were kept away from the public domain.
He recently registered a resounding success with a huge turnout in Gurugram and Jalandhar where more than 20,000 people turned up at each concert to watch the singer perform some of his biggest hits.
Celebrating the show’s success, Diljit shared: “It took a lot of planning and hard work to finally get to this point and perform in India.
“‘Born To Shine World Tour’ has been a magnificent experience for me!
“As a performer, nothing matters more to me than to entertain my fans and the shows at Gurugram and Jalandhar helped me connect with them after a long time.”
Diljit Dosanjh added: “It was so wonderful to see so many people at the two venues and to be able to bring them joy, laughter, and good energy.
“I would like to thank the team of organisers, sponsors & local administration for helping to pull off these concerts with such seamless ease.”
Ahead of the tour’s commencement, Diljit had said: “It has been more than 2 years since I performed live with my last live show taking place in Mumbai early 2020, so I am incredibly excited for this tour.
“I’m pleased to partner with Live Nation and Saregama Live to elevate the experience of the show.
“The intent is to give these special performances to my fans – I truly hope to deliver all that we have imagined and planned for this tour.”
