SPB Concert in Auckland on 23rd feb 2008
This is a Details report SPB Concert in Auckland on 23rd Feb, 2008. Mr. Dominc Raja send to Mr. Vikas, Mumbai the Lovely Details report about Concert. Enjoy his feelings. I thank to Vikas send for immediatly for our members.
Could have requested you to request SPB to meet me for 2 minutes atleast at the concert. The concert was on Sat(23/Feb 08)in Auckland, terrible raining weather with storm. Auckland is not like India, tight security in the concert, I had to take back the photo camera to my car, not allowed inside, so no chance of a video recording. The organisers are mainly money minded, people from Hyderabad.
SPB is a real gem though but unfortunately he has to play along with authority.
SPB was conferred with 2 awards , one from Telugu association and other from Kannada koota of new Zealand.
SPB's big honour was that the Prime Minister was the chief guest at the concert.
SPB was majestic, dazzling, dynamic and full of energy and blast.
He enthralled the audience with some beautiful and spell bounding resonating with audience clapping, numbers from Telugu, Tamil, Hindi & Kannada films.
The other singers were, S.P.Sailaja, Mallikarjun & Gopika Poornima.
Mallikarjun was a good support to SPB and is a good dancer.
Songs performed in order were:-
1) Sangeetha Sahithya - Swathi Kiranam
2) Illaya Nila - Payanagal Mudivudhilai
3) Tere Mere Beech mae - Ek Duje ke Liye
4)Shankaraa Naadasa - Shankarabaranam
5)Andhi Malai - Raaja Paarvai
6)Jothe Jotheyalli - Geetha
7)Sundari kanaal - Dhalapathi
8)Telugu Song( I don't know)
9)O' Maria - Saagar
10)Vedham Anu Anu - Sagara Sangamam
11)Manil Indha Kadhal - Keladi Kanmani
12)Pehla Pehla Pyaar - Hum Aap ke hai kaun
13)Jeeva veenai - Hombisilu
14) first verse of Aayiram Nilavae vaa (Adimai Pen)
15) Mallarae Mownama - Karna(he started this song with Yeh Duniya ke rakhwalae)
16)Engeyum Epodhum - Ninithalai Innikum( He let Mallikarjun start this song and dnace with it , in the middle of the song SPB took over), what a difference, He can just about tower/shadow any singer in the world).
17)Another Telugu song
18) Dhil Deewana - Maine pyaar kiya
19) Balailakka - Shivaji the Boss
20) Wind up Telugu song.
I am going to remember this for Ever, I was lucky indeed.
Down side is the chepest gallery ticket was NZ $50.00(Rs.1500), next is $100 na d the front seat were $250, which included dinner with the stars. I could not afford $250(house rent for a week over here is around $300). Nothing is fai r, it is a lot better these days to live and work in India. Compare the Rs.250 for the SPB meet.
I made up a audio CD of over 25 English songs from the best American singers and gave it to the organiser(Ravindra) to pass it over to SPB in the concert(interval). I do hope he likes my selection. No chance or way to ask him.
All the best
