Diljit will tour the UK, visiting the likes of Birmingham, Leeds and Wembley
Superstar of Punjab, Diljit Dosanjh returns to the UK for a fresh new tour to celebrate the release of his 2018 album, CON.FI.DEN.TIAL.
The Indian singer and actor has enjoyed a stellar few years in the entertainment industry. Starting out as a popular Punjabi folk and Bhangra singer, Diljit made a headway into Bollywood with tracks such as ‘Aidaan Hi Nachna’ from Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 and ‘Tung Tung Baje’ from Singh is Bling.
He has also been an integral part of Punjabi cinema’s push into the modern age, becoming something of an icon for newer generations of Punjabis.
Films such as Jatt & Juliet, Punjab 1984 and Sardarji have been paramount successes and propelled Punjabi films onto a global stage.
His acting success has not gone unnoticed by Bollywood, and after appearing on a few musical soundtracks, Diljit eventually broke into the industry as an actor to watch out for.
A string of Bollywood films such as Udta Punjab, Phillauri, and Welcome to New York, have all helped to cement his position as a true star of India. He even the Filmfare award for ‘Best Male Debut’ in 2016.
With both his music and his versatile acting roles, the most recent being as a WWI soldier in Sajjan Singh Rangroot, Diljit has amassed a global fanbase. Not least because of his growing social media followings.
An avid user of social media himself, Diljit is one of the few highly prominent Punjabi stars to remain in constant touch with his fans and supporters.
In particular, the ‘Patiala Peg’ singer enjoys an incredibly active fan base in the UK, and his 2016 sold out music tour was declared a huge success.
Now music lovers can enjoy brand new music from the star with songs like ‘High End’, ‘Big Scene’ and the very laid back ‘Offline’ from his latest record, CON.FI.DEN.TIAL.
The impressive album, which has been described as a “collection of Punjabi mood setters”, sees the crossover artist broaden his music style to incorporate elements of pop and R&B, all to suit the modern Punjabi palette.
Without a doubt, the album resonates strongly with British Asian audiences through its smooth urban beats. While the tracks ‘Drive’ and ‘Beedio Call’ reminisce of more traditional Punjabi music vibes but with modern lyrics.
Released in February 2018, the album rapidly climbed the mainstream album charts, reaching number 4. His first music video from the album also saw similar success, garnering 10 million views in just two days.
To celebrate the album’s success, the CON.FI.DEN.TIAL Tour UK 2018 will see Diljit travelling around the UK, visiting the likes of Birmingham, Leeds and Wembley.
