I love a little audience participation :) and when my loyal blog-reader Sharmila Badloe promised to send me pictures from her trip to an Atif Aslam concert in Holland I was thrilled (and boy did she come through, her friend even made a YouTube video!)
Overheard at the concert:
“He’s back in May for another concert…”
“How strange that he just left the stage after his last song and didn’t even say anything to the audience; not even a thank you or see you again soon… totally nothing! Strange huh?”
“But he rocks, it was awesome concert; he has a really good stage presence and of course a beautiful voice!”
P.S. Its kinds endearing that he’s a shy guy no?
A friend of Sharmila’s also happened to be on the same plane arriving from Surinam to Holland (where Atif performed on Thursday, April 1st) so managed to snap these pictures!
You know, considering the screaming-fan reception he got in The Netherlands I feel like we should really be showing our home-grown musical talent a little more love no? Props to you Atif, here’s MY favorite AA song.
