The American rock band are set to make their live debut in Mumbai next month
After surprising fans with the announcement of their India debut this year, American rock band OneRepublic have announced that the show will take place on April 21st at MMRDA Grounds in Mumbai.
“We’ve wanted to visit India for years, and are beyond excited to finally get the chance to not only perform a full concert but also explore your beautiful country,” the band stated in a press release.
Comprising lead vocalist Ryan Tedder, guitarists Drew Brown and Zach Filkins, bassist/cellist Brent Kutzle and drummer Eddie Fisher, OneRepublic, first broke into international success with their 2007 single “Apologize,” cementing their fame soon after with the follow-single “Stop and Stare.” In addition to these two tracks, the band’s Mumbai set list will feature all of their biggest hits over the years including “Secrets,” “Good Life,” “Counting Stars” and songs from their 2016 studio album Oh My My.
Cyrus Gorimar, director of Opium Events and Production—the Mumbai-based company also behind Dream Theater’s India debut last year—explains that they had been in talks with the band’s management for over six months to make the show happen. “We realized that the band enjoys a great repertoire in the country with a significant fanbase [here],” Gorimar stated. “The production and scale will be extraordinary, with a multi-crore spend invested into the event.” He adds that the pre-registrations saw more than 10,000 fans sign up in a span of 24 hours and around 15,000 are expected to attend.
