“It is not very often that you stay awake all night long just because you are elated. I did so many strange things out of excitement on that day. May 3rd 2009… I knew it is going to be one of the happiest days in my life. It is something like ‘a dream came true!’ Ever since my childhood I’d been exposed to a lot of music. It is indeed an inseparable part of mine. And that day, I had the golden opportunity of watching my childhood ‘Music Hero’ live in concert.

The concert was to commence by 7 pm. The gates of The Corporate Stadium (the venue) would be open by 4.30 pm.
