Legendary Film Composer Anirudh Announces U.S. Tour Dates

The "Once Upon A Time" Tour presented by Shri Balaji Entertainment, and powered by Kash Patel Productions, features the North American debut of Anirudh Ravichander, the fastest rising film composer in the World.

From sold-out dates across the globe, including recently sold-out shows at the OVO, London's most iconic music venue, Accor Arena in Paris, and giant live stream appearances hosted by Disney and Hotstar, Anirudh is a rockstar whose viral tunes have taken the film industry by storm! This tour marks a 10-year milestone in his career punctuated by 1.5 Billion streams on Spotify this year alone, and over 670 Million views on his youtube channel.

Anirudh rose to fame early in his career with musical compositions for an award-winning Tamil film titled "3" in 2012, making him the youngest film composer in the Indian Film Industry. He has since composed music for numerous Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi films and has worked with leading film directors and well-known actors across the Indian film industry. His work has received widespread acclaim earning him several awards for his compositions including three Filmfare awards for Best Music Director, and Best Male Playback Singer, and the South Indian International Movie Award for Best Music Director for "3."

"I am excited to come back to the United States," says Anirudh "and this time we are bringing a full live show along with epic performances and a grand celebration commemorating 10 years of incredible music and award-winning Indian Films."


The "Once Upon A Time" Tour will visit six major U.S. cities and features an incredible 360 Degree live show experience that is full of vibrant music, special effects, and high-energy performances that will leave fans cheering, dancing, and singing along. All venues will welcome all ages to attend, offer reserved seating, and be able to accommodate large groups.

"This will be a truly spectacular and unforgettable experience," says Kash Patel, CEO of Kash Patel Productions, a leading cultural events producer and production company based in South Florida. "We have had the opportunity to produce shows for some of the largest artists in the world including A.R. Rahman, Neha Kakkar, Shreya Ghoshal, Atif Aslam, and Sonu Nigam and we are honored to do it again with Anirudh who is an incredibly talented artist and a cultural icon."

Review: GISELLE at Opera House/Kennedy Center Photo
What did our critic think of GISELLE at Opera House/Kennedy Center? Giselle, like Hamlet for actors, Carmen for mezzo-sopranos, and Mrs. Lovett for musical theatre singer/actors of a certain age, brings audiences to the theatre to get to know the skills of the latest acclaimed ballerina. (Previous Giselles include: Makarova, Fracci, Julie Kent, Gelsey Kirkland, Alonso, Markova, Misty Copeland, Fonteyn, Virginia Johnson, Pavlova.) Ukrainian-Russian choreographer Alexei Ratmansky, former director of the Bolshoi Ballet, current artist in residence for American Ballet Theatre, soon to be artist in residence for New York City Ballet, has brought three ballerinas to dance Giselle with a company of exiled, excellent Ukrainian dancers to the Kennedy Center through February 5.

Review: THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT at Keegan Theatre Photo
In a world of fake news, alternate facts, social media frenzy and an increasingly opinionated and polarized public/audience, the issues raised in the intellectually challenging play The Lifespan of a Fact are more relevant than ever.  Now being presented at the Keegan Theatre, this play may be short in length, but it probingly explores the weighty issues of the passion of the essay writer/prose stylist versus the scrupulous and zealous fact-checking of the journalist/article writer.
