"The March 15 concert was prorogued for a month as the ticket sale was not satisfactory to support the grand performance"

KATHMANDU: The British rock band Deep Purple prorogued its live concert in Nepal, scheduled for Friday (March 15), for a month --citing ongoing strikes and agitations led by different political forces and their youth wings.

“Due to the prevailing bandhs and protests, the members of Deep Purple have decided to cancel their Nepal tour for now,” Simanta Gurung, CEO of the ODC Entertainment, said.

Bollywood artiste Farhan Akhtar, who was also scheduled for his cameo performance along with the Deep Purple, has cancelled his Nepal tour, according to Gurung .


The band was set to arrive in Kathmandu on Thursday after performing in Singapore, but they diverted themselves to their home country, England after the concert was called off.

A source privy to the details of concert organisation, however, informed that the March 15 concert was prorogued for a month as the ticket sale was not satisfactory to support the grand performance.

The local partners of the concert will formally announce the cancellation of the concert amid a press conference at Hotel Radission at 2 pm tomorrow.

Last month on February 15, the Deep Purple Live in Concert‚ Kathmandu‚ Nepal was announced to take place on March 15 at Dasharath Rangasala‚ produced and managed by Jet Set PR Entertainment Pvt Ltd with ODC Entertainment.

The band will also release the official information regarding the cancellation of their Nepal tour in their official webpage.

Deep Purple was branded as the ‘Globe’s Loudest Band’ by the Guinness Books of World Records in 1975. The English rock band rocked the music scene in the late 60s‚ mid-70s and from late 80s to early 90s.

Though the event is said to be done by JPR, that once brought Bryan Adams there are two different pages. JPR (facebook.com/jprevent) has nothing about Deep Purple’s concert, and JPR written as JetSetPR (http://www.facebook.com/jetsetprevents) who was going to organize this concert was established only few months before event. something fishy here. Amar Rai, Kathmandu

JPR is fraud company who keeps saying sometime Superstar Football in Nepal, Scorpions Live in Nepal. And ODC Entertainment if Fake because they are not ODC Network "Original" who brought Bryan and MLTR to Nepal. Simant Gurung is thaag who sometime says, Shakira Live in Nepal, and Now DEEP Purple ??
