Book Ahead: Penn Masala, Lucy Rose To Play Mumbai In May
There’s more than just Justin Bieber (and opening act Norwegian electronic music producer Alan ‘Faded’ Walker) to catch in May. It may be the peak of summer but that isn’t stopping international acts from visiting next month. Popular US a cappella act Penn Masala, made up of a rotating line-up of South Asian students from the University of Pennsylvania, is slated to perform at Phoenix MarketCity in Kurla on Saturday, May 20. The gig is the first stop of their tour of India to promote their new album Yuva. Tickets priced at Rs1,500 per person are being sold on Insider.in.
British singer-songwriter Lucy Rose, who last toured the country in March 2016, will return to our shores in May to play tunes from her upcoming third album Something’s Changing and screen its accompanying documentary, which tracks her travels through South America over two months last year. The show, like her last visit, is part of an India tour that’s been put together by Bangalore venue The Humming Tree, which also organised Mike Posner‘s trek here in January. In Mumbai, Rose is slated to perform on Friday, May 26 at the Royal Opera House, which is currently shut until Monday, May 15. The first round of tickets priced at Rs500 per person are being sold on Insider.in.
Update (Friday, May 26) The venue of the Lucy Rose show has been shifted to the NCPA Little Theatre in Nariman Point.
