‘Indian Idol 10’ winner, Salman Ali dazzled crowds with his first ever solo gig at The SSE Arena, Wembley last weekend.
Helmed by the pioneers of UK Bollywood concerts, Rock On Music, Ali impressed with a selection of popular songs from various eras. As well as performing songs by other singers, Ali also did his first UK live performance of Bollywood song ‘Awara’ from ‘Dabangg 3’.
Rock On Music is renowned for bringing the biggest Bollywood singers to the UK including Arijit Singh, Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal, Sunidhi Chauhan and Shaan amongst many others. As well as established artists, Rock On Music has fast become a champion of new artists. Last year, Rock On Music was the only promoter to showcase finalists from the ‘Indian Idol 10’ television show. Similarly, Rock On Music is this March bringing finalists from ‘Indian Idol 11’ to the UK for the first time.
Vijay Bhola of Rock On Music told BizAsiaLive.com, “Salman Ali’s first Wembley concert exceeded our expectations and proved another success for the Rock On Music brand. We have over the years brought some of the biggest music artists from Bollywood. It now gives me great pleasure to provide a platform for fresh, emerging singers on the big stage. As well as India, we’re giving opportunity to local talent such as The 515 Crew. We’re also thrilled that The SSE Arena presented Salman Ali with the ‘First Solo Headline Performance’ award.”
