THE BIGGEST MUSICAL OF THE MILLENNIUM!!
After the stupendous success of THE INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE CONCERT in Dubai in January 2019 witnessed by over 7000 JUNOONIS from UAE, GCC states, UK, Germany, France, Netherlands, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, South Africa, USA, Canada, Ireland, etc. etc. – THE PATH BREAKING CONGREGATION IN DUBAI OF JUNOON FANS (JUNOONIS) FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD!!!
Oberoi Middle East Events presents JUNOON RELOADED – THE MIDDLE EAST EXCLUSIVE, on November 29, 2019 at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium.
OME - Junoon collaboration completes 20 glorious years and we are proud to launch their “Reunion INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE” and their “Reloaded Concert,” said Naresh Oberoi, Founder and Chairman of Oberoi (Middle East) Events. “Incidentally it was at ‘Jaan Yehi Dosti Hai-The sequel’, the concert organised by us in 2004, where Salman, Ali Azmat and Brian O Connell publicly performed together for the last time ever. And now, following their reunion in 2018, they will be performing once again in Dubai for their 2nd international concert together in Dubai. It will be another historic night,” he added.
Widely regarded as the best band Pakistan has ever produced, Junoon ruled the South Asian music industry through the 1990s and early 2000s. With Salman as lead guitarist and songwriter, Ali as lead vocalist and Brian on bass guitar, the band produced several critically and commercially successful albums, including ‘Inquilab’, ‘Azadi’ and ‘Parvaaz’. Singles such as ‘Jazba-e-Junoon’, ‘Sayonee’, ‘Saeein’, ‘Bulleya’ and ‘Khudi’ conquered the charts and stayed there for months. Junoon earned raging popularity for its unique and pioneering Sufi Rock sound, which blended western rock music with elements of Pakistani folk songs and classical poetry.
Following multiple prestigious awards and sellout international tours, the band broke up in 2005 after Brian went back to the US and Ali set out to pursue a solo career. He subsequently released two solo albums.
Salman, also the band’s founder, retained the ‘Junoon’ brand name and regularly released music under the label. He simultaneously gained immense recognition for his social activism and has served as a UN Goodwill Ambassador for HIV/AIDS Programme, spreading awareness about HIV in South Asia. As a polio goodwill ambassador for Rotary International, Salman has tirelessly worked for eradication of polio in Pakistan.
Throughout these years, while former band members were engaged in solo careers, fans kept Junoon the band and its music alive in their hearts, never losing hope of a reunion.....
Salman Ahmad, the Producer/ Lead Gutarist of Junoon stated:
“Nothing great can be achieved without passion and enthusiasm. Junoon is thrilled to be partnering with Oberoi Middle East Events for its 6th international concert in Dubai on November 29, 2019, as the closing concert of the 2019 World tour. It promises a night of Jazba & Junoon for all”.
“Junoon is not just a band, it’s a phenomenon with a cult-like following that cuts across geographical boundaries and age groups. We have brought Junoon to Dubai for 5 concerts in the past. Every time they have performed at our event, the arena has been packed to capacity, breaking attendance records,” said Oberoi. “The band’s split was heartbreaking for everyone. Thousands of Junoonis have been waiting for years to see Salman, Ali and Brian get back together. ‘Junoon Reloaded’ will see everyone’s dream finally coming true once again. It promises to be a highly emotional and memorable event that no fan will want to miss,” he concluded.
