It has barely been a month since
eminent singer and songwriter Bryan Adams created a national hysteria in the country, and now the country will get a chance to be entertained by one of the worlds most popular and celebrated Senegalese-American singer, songwriter and producer, Akon starting the weekend of April 15, 2011. The world renowned singer will be putting up exclusive and exhilarating performances in Gurgaon on 16 April at Huda Grounds and Bangalore on 17 April at Gayatri Vihar, Palace Grounds.

This is the very first time that an international Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum artist whose worldwide sales top 7 million units will be celebrating his birthday which also falls on 16th of April on home grounds. The Indian edition of Venky’s Akon Live In Concert is being brought to the country by Netsurf Entertainment and B.M. Group, IVNO Events and Productions in association with Thrive Entertainment and S. Raj Entertainment. Fans at the concerts can expect to shake a leg to some of his internationally acclaimed numbers including ‘Beautiful, Lonely, Right Now, Dangerous, I’m So Paid, Angel’ and many more.

Akon first shot to prominence in 2004 after the release of "Locked Up" – the first single from his debut album trouble.  Later, with his second album "Convicted", Akon earned a Grammy Award nomination for his song "Smack that". In the year 2005, Akon released a single entitled "Lonely". The song turned out to be a massive success as it figured among the top five songs on the Billboard Hot 100. It also topped charts in Australia, the UK and Germany.  "Lonely" also became the longest running single to stay at the top of the Box' musical show chart with its domination spanning over fifteen weeks. Akon holds the distinction for being the first solo artist to be at both the number one and two spots simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 charts twice.

He has been nominated for 6 Grammy Awards. Speaking from across the globe, Akon said, “It’s your boy Akon and you heard it straight from me - New Delhi and Bangalore get ready for my live show. The wait is finally over and now for the first time ever, I’m excited to bring my live show to India.  I can’t wait for my fans to join me where I’ll be performing all of your favorites and some new songs from my upcoming album, Stadium. It’s also my birthday so I have something very special planned for all my fans so you know it’s going to be one big party.” Concert proceeds to be donated to Mana Shetty’s NGO ‘Save The Children India’
