An ensemble of 18 musicians and performers from the UAE are coming together with Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam to perform at an electrifying concert titled Sonu Nigam - The Light, at the Dubai World Trade Centre on August 21.
Blu Blood Middle East, with the support of Dubai Summer Surprise as well as The Dubai Arts & Culture Authority and Dubai Calendar, are bringing to the stage the world's first-ever live Bollywood concert with Covid-19 consciousness - meaning the show will preserve social distance norms. The event will follow all the health and safety guidelines set by the Dubai government.
Nigam is an award-winning and multi-talented Bollywood singer and actor. The collaboration of local and international performers has been carefully harmonised in this state-of-the-art show featuring an astounding orchestra, dazzling lighting and sound while retaining the essence of Nigam's true Bollywood style of musical magnificence.
This summer season, the 23rd edition of Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS) features a multitude of exclusively held events hosted across Dubai and Sonu Nigam - The Light concert is part of the seven-week extravaganza which offers exciting events, promotions and sales ranging from 25 per cent to 90 per cent off, unlimited entertainment, F&B offers and family fun. 
"The Light is a reminder that no matter the darkness, love, beauty and light will always prevail," remarked Nigam.
"We are pleased to be making history, for Blu Blood this concert represents the light at the end of this darkness, and we will prevail with the Will of the Almighty, the world will see a new normal," said Osman Osman, managing director of Blu Blood.
Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO, Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment, added: "Sonu Nigam is regarded as one of the best Bollywood singers and it gives me great pleasure to count this world-first performance as one of the most unforgettable events in the Dubai Summer Surprises 2020 line up. The diverse mix of offerings in the 23rd edition of DSS is a testament to the city of Dubai and its diverse population mix. With every DSS we take great efforts to ensure there is something for everyone to enjoy, and I have no doubt this concert will appeal to a broad range of residents and visitors with music appreciation."
