Multiple award winning Mozart from Madras A.r. Rahman has reportedly teamed up with Amy Tinkham, known for creating live musical concerts for Britney Spears and Mariah Carey, for a tour to salute Bollywood and Indian music.
Rahman shot to international fame through his music for Slumdog Millionaire (2008). The track 'Jai Ho' earned him a Golden Globe Award for best original score, a BAFTA Award for best film music, two Academy Awards for best original music score and best original song and two Grammy Awards for best compilation soundtrack and best motion picture song.
Rahman's spokesperson said,"The Journey Home World Tour will be a theatrical experience that will blend new technologies with powerful dance arrangements and acrobatics. The concert will keep intact the heritage and traditions of India with a new modern presentation” "The show will feature changing sets, large images on LED screens and a spectacular cast of musicians and dancers from across the globe."
The World Tour is slated to begin in June at the Nassau Coliseum in New York. It will feature music from the film and tracks he was working on with the late Michael Jackson before the King of Pop died last summer.
