Winter concerts return, so does James

‘Dushtu Cheler Dol’ of ‘Guru,’ the famous musician Faruq Mahfuz Anam James, have waited long enough to headbang on songs like ‘Pagla Hawa’ or ‘Mira Bai’ in a concert. 

New couples have waited for the world to heal so that they hold each other’s hand and hum ‘Tarai Tarai Rotiye Debo’ along with the legend himself in an open field or a convention centre. 

When other artists were more or less active on online platforms during all those COVID-19 shutdowns, Nagar Baul James was largely absent. 

Finally, the wait is over as James and his crew Nagar Baul are making their on-stage return through a concert titled ‘November Rain.’ 

Brandmyth Communications is organising the event at International Convention City in Bashundhara residential area of the capital on November 12. 

In addition, people attending the concert will also get an opportunity to sing ‘Onilket Prantor’ or ‘Pothchola’ with Lincoln himself as Artcell too will be rocking the stage that night. 

The concert won’t just be a celebration of Nagarbaul and Artcell as six other bands - Cryptic Fate, Viking, Black, Plasmic Knock, Savagery and Fuge will perform. 

When contacted, one of the organisers Fuad Ruhanee Khan confirmed the line-up to the Financial Express. 

“James bhai is returning on stage after a long break. This in itself makes the event a blockbuster one,” he said over the phone. 

“This is an early winter rock concert for the hard rock/heavy metal fans. We hope the audience will love our attempt. The essence of the famous song ‘November Rain’ of Gun’s & Roses will be present throughout the event.” 

Fahim Khan, a band music enthusiast, told FE, “There is only one Guru and his name is James. I am over the moon as he is returning on stage.”

The tickets are already on sale and are available at the official website of Brandmyth Communication. Ticket price ranges from Tk 699 (Regular) to Tk 1499 (VIP) depending on the choice of seats. 

Earlier, James made his brief return on stage after a year-long break at the beginning of this year. He performed on stage at PSC Convention Hall in the capital’s Mirpur area on March 12.
