A Close shave with Atif aslam ;-)

Ahead of his huge National Day concert in Abu Dhabi, Pakistani superstar Atif Aslam reveals his inspirations
When did you decide to hold a concert in Abu Dhabi together with Indian rockers Euphoria?
Dhabi Cricket Club approched me to have this event on UAE National
Day, so I thought it’ll be interesting to do a big show at the Zayed
What set list are you preparing for this concert?
I’ll try to do the numbers which will represent the emotions of people
of Pakistan and India to celebrate UAE National Day.
The Zayed Cricket Stadium is a unique venue. What kind of concert arenas do you like best?
venues are always nice, as acoustics are more controlled and energy is
at a higher level. I really loved performing at the Royal Albert Hall
What does performing on the stage mean to you today?
is all about expressing yourself, your inner feelings after being
inspired by the environment around you. Performing onstage means a lot
to me. It gives you a real high - like the sense of flying - when you
see thousands of people moving.
What inspires you and your music?
Everything happening around me is my inspiration.
Of all your songs, which one is your personal favourite?
Yakeen and Jalpari.
What are your future projects?
I will be doing some more songs for Bollywood movies and have some tours planned as well.
