Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan attended the iconic event in London where Hollywood screen legend Al Pacino lit up the London Palladium stage as he thrilled a captivated audience with his critically acclaimed one-man show 'An Evening With Pacino' on the 2nd June 2013. However, Abhishek's wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan gave a miss to it. Earlier both Aishwarya and Abhishek were reported to meet the veteran.


The Oscar-winning actor Al Pacino brought his celebrated show for its European premiere to the world-famous London Palladium. The one-off performance provided a special opportunity for fans of the silver screen legend to see and interact with their hero up close.

'An Evening with Pacino' explored the myriad highlights of one of the most celebrated careers in acting history, from his time off-Broadway in the 1960s right up to the present day, with the actor himself in intimate theatre surroundings. The evening included an on-stage interview projected on a state-of-the-art large screen, bringing the action closer to the audience. The show also gave the public a rare chance to speak directly to Al Pacino in a Question & Answer session.

An Evening with Pacino marked a fitting accolade to showcase the incredible life and career of one of the world's most respected, talented and loved film and theatre actors.

Speaking about the event, Al Pacino said: "I love being on the stage, it's a big passion of mine. It was a privilege to perform in London at the Palladium after so many years. I loved the live element of the event and being so close to my fans in the UK. The last time I was here was for the docu-drama WILDE SALOME. It's always great to be back."

One of the very few actors to have won the Triple Crown in acting (Oscar, Emmy and Tony Awards), winning his first Tony in 1969 for DOES A TIGER WEAR A NECKTIE, Al Pacino won worldwide acclaim for his role as Michael Corleone in THE GODFATHER, which also gave him the first of his eight Academy Award nominations. An enduring and highly regarded acting career has followed, with standout performances in DOG DAY AFTERNOON, SERPICO, SCARFACE, SEA OF LOVE, GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS, HEAT, DONNIE BRASCO, and SCENT OF A WOMAN, for which he won the Best Actor Award at the 1992 Oscars.
