About the event

Academy Award two-time winner and five-time nominee; Grammy two-time winner; BAFTA; and Golden Globe winner, the legendary AR Rahman, returns to the SSE Arena Wembley on Saturday 8th July 2017 after seven years with the “Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow” concert. Celebrating 25 years since his acclaimed, music debut Roja, the visionary composer will be joined onstage by very special guests including Benny Dayal, Javed Ali, Neeti Mohan, Haricharan, Jonita Gandhi, Ranjit Barot and many more.

“Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow” marks the first in a global series, celebrating 25 years of the timeless music of AR Rahman and his team, who have crafted and perfected performances that are enriched with high-scale technology and production. Leading engineers from around the world have been brought on board to present spectacular lighting and visuals as a backdrop to the live sounds of the musical genius, creating a multi-media extravaganza that will provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience for fans and audiences.

Discussing the forthcoming UK show, AR Rahman says, “From Roja to Rockstar, Kaatru Veliyidai and more, it has been an incredible musical journey over these last 25 years. I’ve been immensely blessed to have the love and support of my fans, music lovers, friends and well-wishers. It continues to inspire and motivate me. Come, join me on the 8th of July at Wembley, London! Accompanying me is an amazingly talented and energetic team of singers and musicians.”??

“Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow” will chronicle AR Rahman’s musical journey from past to present to future. Popularly known as the man who has redefined contemporary Indian music, he was named in 2009 as one of TIME Magazine's most influential people in the world. According to a BBC estimate, he has sold more than 150 million copies of his work comprising music from more than 160 film soundtracks and albums in over half a dozen languages.

The milestone concert falls during the British Council’s UK-India year of culture. Two decades ago, to commemorate 50 years of Indian Independence, Sony Music signed AR Rahman as their first artist in South Asia. The result was Vande Mataram, an album that instantly connected Indians worldwide and succeeded in rekindling the spirit of patriotism.
