The year 2011 is marked as the Tourism year here in Nepal and as February is known for the month of love. The sensational rock star of all time is all set to construct Heaven in the very own Himalayan Kingdom with his songs. The Canadian Rock Star Bryan Addams has confirmed his arrival here in Kathmandu as part of his World Tour. He is scheduled to perform here in the capital itself on 19th Feb, 2011.
At a press conference held on December 8 at Soaltee Crowne Plaza, it was revealed that Adams will perform at the Plaza on February 20th, 2011.
The Bryan Adams live-in-concert is being organized by JPR events and supported by ODC Network. Sunil Hamal – CEO of JPR Events, Suresh Jung Raimajhi and Simant Gurung – CEO and Director of ODC Network were present at the press meet to answer media queries.
They informed that Adams’ agent Roi Lamb was here to check out the venue for the event. He has duly advised the organizers to maintain the standards of the security and the hotel he resides for the event.
Adams, a Canadian artiste, is known for his husky, soulful voice and has given hits like Everything I do; I do it for you, 18 till I Die, Have Your Ever Really Loved a Woman, Summer of 69, Heaven among others.
One of the coordinators of the event Samden Sherpa said “Nepal celebrates the year 2011 as Tourism Year and Adams’ visit will highlight this in the global community. Adams is an evergreen icon and the winner of many awards and his popularity cannot just be ignored.”
He also went on to add, “And also February being the month of love, let us start and celebrate the year on a positive note.” Hamal claimed, “We had to convince Adams to perform in Nepal since he is already on a world tour. He will be performing in India and Bangladesh as part of the Bryan Adams Live Full Band Show World Tour, and we have managed to procure two days of his time for a tour of Nepal as well. The real idea is to support our Nepal Tourism Year 2011.”
