When news broke out that one of the most loved English bands, Coldplay, will be performing in Mumbai, most of the general public did not believe their ears. But only when the news was confirmed recently did social media go in a frenzy! The event, known as the Global Citizen Festival, will be held in Mumbai in the month of November. However, it is the list of Indian performers that is adding to the impatience of the audience.
Ranveer Singh To Perform With Coldplay
Reports say that names like Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, A. R. Rahman, and Aamir Khan will be joining Coldplay and Jay Z in the concert. However, the latest addition to the list of performers is our very own Bajirao, Ranveer Singh. According to sources, the Befikre actor has been roped in to be one of the major performers at the festival. He has already been in the news due to his latest hits, string of wacky endorsements, and social media posts. Hence, he was an obvious choice for the organisers. Apparently, Ranveer will be seen performing to his biggest hits during the concert. Plus, after his recent performance with Major Lazer, choosing him for the festival doesn’t come as a surprise.
Concert Will Be Held In Mumbai
The large-scale concert to be held in November will be a six-hour long event. As a matter of fact, the Global Citizen Campaign is organizing several concerts across the world to create awareness about the increasing issue of poverty. The series of global events will kick start this month in New York with big names like Rihanna, Demi Lovato, amongst others. However, the Mumbai concert will be special since it is the first of its kind in India. Apart from live performances and short films, UN secretary general Ban Ki Moon and Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi will also be addressing the crowd and speaking about the issue of poverty.
