A R RahmanThe magic, mystique, and music of Bollywood arrives in the Chicago area when A R Rahman, superstar Indian composer of Broadway’s BOMBAY DREAMS and over 70 films, makes his Midwest concert debut at the Sears Centre, 5333 Prairie Stone Parkway, Hoffman Estates, for one night only, Saturday, June 9, at 8 p.m.

Hailed by Time Magazine as the ‘Mozart of Madras’, A R Rahman is one of the most successful artistes of all time, redefining contemporary Indian music. In a country where film music is the most popular form of music, A R Rahman reigns supreme having sold close to 200 million albums.

For one night only, A R Rahman will take his audience on a trip across the seas and distant lands revealing the exotic, sensuous and vibrant culture of India. With an ensemble of more than 45 musicians, 12 singers and 20 dancers direct from India, A R Rahman will transcend musical genres by fusing folk music from China, India and Turkey as well as pop, rock, jazz, Broadway and classical music, to give audience members the opportunity to experience the real meaning of eclectic world music. This concert will feature works scored for the Broadway hit-musical Bombay Dreams and the musical Lord of the Rings (currently at the Theater Royal Drury Lane in London), as well as classical music and songs from several Bollywood and western movies.

Dissolving cultural boundaries and music genres, A R Rahman leads musicians, singers and dancers on a bold and intoxicating quest to wow audience members, both young and old, with one of the most thrilling concert spectacles Chicagoland has seen! Not for the faint-of-heart, this concert will also include a laser and 3-D light show as well as pyrotechnics.
