World-acclaimed musical maestro, Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, will be serenading South African fans “LIVE” this Valentine’s Day in a one-night-only grandiose affair. Fans will be able to experience the energy of a state-of-the-art live stage concert from the best seat in the house…the safe confines of their living room.
“Musicians all around the world have had their entire careers disrupted by the pandemic and so, I am excited for this opportunity to create a memorable online live event for my loyal fans in South Africa,” comments the iconic Pakistani artist.
The event is powered by well-known lifestyle and management company, Blu Blood, who are synonymous for bringing high profile entertainment to South African stages. While this event is taking place online, Blu Blood will deliver the same premier and unparalleled show quality that patrons have come to enjoy at all their live shows! #theblubloodway
“People are longing for those moments of happiness and connection that they experienced at live concerts before Covid and with live entertainment in SA currently on hold, we’ve wanted to try find a new way to engage with our loyal South African audience and to also capture fans that have never had the chance to watch Rahat live on stage,” says Blu Blood Managing Director, Osman Osman. “There were no major Bollywood events on the African continent last year and we don’t foresee large live scale concerts this year either, and so we want to be able to continue giving fans ways to celebrate safely and still get the royal Blu Blood experience as best as possible.”
Blu Blood CEO, Shaaista Khan Osman adds: “Our hope is to be able to share some musical joy during these times. With a message of love, peace and spiritualism, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, will mesmerise households with the best romantic and soulful songs on this day of love and showcase why he is undoubtedly one of the greatest musical legends of our time.”
As the world works its way back to a level of “normalcy”, Blu Blood have been at the forefront of re-opening the live entertainment industry in Dubai. The company opened a second base in the UAE in 2019 and have recently hosted two successful high profile Bollywood concerts with Covid-consciousness since the pandemic started, with the support of the Dubai Tourism Corporation.
